Most skateboards at the time were mostly wood finished with a generic logo, and in 1978 my buddy and I were looking through Skateboarder magazines deciding what skateboards we would want our parents to buy us.  I was considering asking for a Logan Earth Ski myself, and one day my friend showed me a Dogtown Skates deck his mom had just bought him (I wish I could remember which model it was).  The graphics were amazing and really gave his skateboard a little attitude and it seemed like the most radical deck I had ever seen.  For my next birthday I had my dad take me right to my local skate shop and I grabbed a DT Jim Muir Red Dog design board and had a great time with it over the next few years.

I think these pictures capture perfectly just how different a radical the DT decks were at the time thanks to Wes' artwork.  I'm not sure if younger skaters really appreciate how much of a game changer it was at the time. These pics really take me back there.

I think that antsee should just give them away. I mean, something this old is probably dry rotted, termite infested and generally just old; of no real interest to anyone.
