If I wanted to find out what colorways were made between specific years (‘87-‘89) for specific decks (Cab, Ripper and Lance Mountain) is there a resource for that?

I mean, I look at AOS and there might be a couple images uploaded, but nothing complete. I’ve spent hours and everything I find is piecemeal.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks for that. I contacted Powell Peralta who said “Sorry we do not have anything available at this time. we are working on and coming out with a coffee table book soon, hopefully.”

They don’t owe me shit, obviously, but c’mon...there is a spreadsheet somewhere in that company that could answer my question.

Thousands and thousands of each pro model each year.
The royalty cheques would be the best idea on quantities produced.
As they would have been paid on per deck sales. I have seen old photos of the powell peralta production line, it looked like hundreds produced each day.

There used to be a website with a pretty thorough archive of CCS catalog scans...rottenapplemedia.com or something. Is that website still up and running?

I’m not after the number of decks made, just the colorways. Not how many of each, but what colour of each. Like, the ‘89 McGill, for example, was produced in natural, red, etc. The ‘87 Ripper was produced in white, blue, etc.

Edit: Whatever.

As for powell decks between 87-89 assume they were all made in every standard powell color and you'll be near the truth. If you want exceptions you'll have to make an effort.

Is natural a standard colour? Were all the PP decks in the late 80’s produced in natural?
