In this edition of counterfeits we have 2 fake Sims decks. The blue one on the left is an almost exact copy of the Kevin Staab ‘Mad Scientist’ model from 1986, designed by John Lucero. The ‘Pirate’ model on the right was based on a Staab pro deck from 1987, designed by Lance Welborn. The pink complete says ‘Aims’ instead of ‘Sims’ and ‘Ataab’ instead of ‘Staab’, very clever …
Thanks to Matt Bass for the tip.
The blue ‘Rolling Strong’ deck sold on eBay for $36 after 2 bids. The pink ‘Aims’ complete has the same skull with dagger like the one on the Kryptonics bootleg from a few months ago and was on eBay a while back.
This is the original ad for the ‘Mad scientist’ model, as seen on skately.
