Gonz Skull and Bananas Fake

Yesterday I was looking at some old boards on eBay and to my surprise found one seller that not only had all of the Blind Powell Spoof series, but had two sets of them in mint condition. These boards are pretty rare and almost unheard of mint still in the shrink wrap. The description read that these boards were from a "friends collection", but what made me real suspicious was this "SALES ARE FINALE!! NO RETURNS AT ALL!!" It didn't take long after looking at the pictures to figure out that these were fake. The Gonz has the biggest give away with the fake board not having the black outside boarder. Other give aways include the fact that the shapes are not even close to the originals and that the front hole patterns are wrong. It's sad that the seller is trying to pass these off as "the real deal", but it's even sadder that people are bidding on them. Here is a link to his eBay store Make sure to drop by and let him know what a scumbag he is.

  1. I just saw this auction for fake Skull and Banana + the other two. The seller is up front that it's not authentic but damn... still lame and fake.
