Fake ghost

street-ghost

This is an almost identical copy of the Vision ‘Street ghost’ deck from 1986, originally designed by John Grigley. The only thing the bootlegger changed was ‘Vision’ into ‘RB SKEBO’, whatever that means.

In this picture you can see the original Vision ‘Street Ghost’ on the left (as seen on eBay Watch November 2013) and the RB SKEBO (from eBay) on the right. According to Neil, John Grigley did this artwork with his left hand, because his right arm was broken at the time … I think that explains a lot, but not why you would even think about stealing this silly drawing. At least the colours on the Vision make sense, the bootleg version is a total disaster.

    I love these toy store “pro” boards, David! Had one myself a century ago.

    What was the expression? “You can land a plane on that tail.”

    Hoping Dorfman’s not getting any royalties!
