McGill counterfeit


This crazy thing doesn’t need much explanation. It’s a bootleg of a Powell Peralta Mike Mcgill ‘Skull and Snake’ with snakeskin background from 1986 or 1987 and  it even has wheel wells, where the original one (seen on right) doesn’t. The original artist is of course VCJ and I guess you could say that the counterfeiter made a pretty nice ‘interpretation’ of VCJ’s work, although the ‘skating fox with slippers’ on the topside has nothing to do with the ripper or any of the Powell graphics. For sale on Ebay. Thanks to Sara Raso for the pics.

    That Fox thing appeared on loads of cheap completes in the 80s. I had one which had the same graphic on the underside but had the words ‘Off the Wall’ too.

      I saw the fox on some of these cheap boards too and another fox on this fake jason jessee. Maybe the counterfeiters wanted to show the buyers they were ‘foxed’.
