This my friends is the real deal! This is your chance to own a true piece of history. This board is A complete featuring The first pressing of the most iconic skateboard graphic of all time the Ripper by Vernon Courtlandt Johnson. OG 8 ply construction. Cell block II risers. Vert grab rails unfortunately missing jar and nose bone (although hardware is present). Original first press classic dragon top graphic. This is not a reproduction! This is an Authenticated first pressing of the ripper. I had IT authenticated by the experts at the Morro Bay skateboard museum. The last picture is from the disposable skate board Bible book verifying that this is the first pressing of the ripper from 1984. Some other features that verify its age. The tail of the Dragon on the top graphic is the earlier draft featuring more detail in the tail & wings. That was changed shortly after to make screen printing easier. Absence of the XT for xtra tough on the top graphic. Two color blue and white Screenprint was The first color scheme. This board was hardly rIdden and maybe only on a vert ramp. The actual ripper graphic itself is in great shape with hardly any scratches. Check out this article for more info.
