Skateboard Sticker Alert: RetroSkateStickers

Fans of vintage skateboard stickers, take note: RetroSkateStickers has got the goods--from Airwalk to Zorlac and everything in between--both for sale and for show.

The site was started by Blair, who's been collecting vintage skateboard stickers since way back in 1989. First, he went crazy for World Industries and Blind. He moved on to H-Street, Santa Cruz, Powell Peralta, and then Volcom in the mid-90s.

Needless to say, the man acquired a vast personal collection of stickers, which has now been condensed to around 350+ of his closest friends (which he will, of course, never sell). But he his "sticker vault" is also home to hundreds of mint-quality duplicate skateboard stickers, so he decided to start an online store to share the wealth.

Prices range from under $5 to $125, depending on the level of artwrork, scarcity and sought-after status of the sticker. RetroSkateStickers is also home to a gallery of Blair's personal faves, bits of skate sticker history, and rare sticker alerts.
