Hopefully one of you fine gentlemen can help me out on this -

I've been told the burger never had Blind's top logo on it (and don't understand the reasoning behind that if it's true)

I've also been told Rocco found a bunch of burger slabs back in 94 and re-released them as originals - or is that just bunk?

any info appreciated

never noticed this thread.

anyway - my used burger deck has no top logo. why?? my guess would be that the 80's habit of customising the grip job had turned obsolete by '91/'92. I remember most my decks had a full-on grip job by then - especially since many of the new school tricks involved a sketchy foot positioning, so there was little room for ungripped spots on top of the deck. so what would be the point of screening a top logo??

concerning the mid-90's reissues, check the discussion on AoS - it's all there. I think I remember seeing a cut-down burger deck at a skateshop in the mid-90s (of course I was too short-sightet to consider it as a piece of skateboard history… but I couldn't have cared less about a damn slick board by then, haha). A buddy of mine owns a cut-down Plan B D Way Hannibal deck that he purchased at the same time.
those decks were on sale in European skateshops which never could have purchased these decks had they been 'faked' by slapping OG slicks onto new decks… which would have involved different circuits of distribution.

A lot of World brand slicks from this era had no top logo.

Thanks everyone! I like the storyline behind the deck and wanted to be sure my ducks were in a row before getting one that was available - which has now gone to someone else who must have had his ducks fucking organized, with military precision *damnit!

Probably because it is in the wrong section...

This is where it confuses me, it's not an "Asking the value" type thread - but it is a Buyer's of New Old Stock question - and the seller I wanted to keep anonymous cuz his boar was on the cheap, and I would love to have gotten it on the cheap - god has smited my wallet this past year with floods, parents, a car accident, and in-laws! in-laws: should be the first thing Moses threatened the Pharaoh with
