Autographed Tech Decks

July 20, 2010
By

When I was in junior high I would cut the small deck images out of the mail-order ads in the skate magazines, laminate them with contact paper I had at home, bend up the nose and tail, and then during English class I would “skate” these things all over my desk and books. Around the same time, Town & Country came out with skateboard keychains, that were like a lame version of a tech deck. We would “ride” these things at lunch on the benches and stuff, and my friend could make it “ollie” and do flip tricks. If someone could have sent me one of today’s tech decks back in time, I would have not only been the most popular kid in school, I DEFINITELY wouldn’t have learned a thing. Actually, I’m not sure I learned anything as it was, and everyone hated skaters, so I probably wouldn’t have been any more popular, but if nothing else, I would have been pretty stoked.

Now that I’m 35 and have two kids, I don’t have the mindless spare time I had in school to play with tech decks, but as I mentioned, I have two kids, and there’s nothing like a tech deck to get them started on the right path in life.

So why am I talking about tech decks? Cause they sent me a few free ones as part of their “get the word out” effort about a batch of autographed tech decks. Here’s the official press release. Go get you some.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TECH DECK® BRINGS THE AUTOGRAPHS OF THE TOP PRO SKATERS FROM THE STREETS TO YOUR FINGERTIPS

Collect the limited edition board packages available exclusively this summer

Toronto, ON/ Los Angeles, CA – July 19, 2010 – Tech Deck®’s reputation for delivering only the most authentic replica skateboard collectables has reached new heights this summer. Tech Deck® has joined forces with the biggest stars of skateboarding and upped the ante for collectors. Some of the most respected pro riders have personally signed 100 or less Tech Deck® board packages, making these the rarest collector’s items of the Tech Deck® line. From the streets to your fingertips, the hottest collectable Tech Deck®’s will be randomly distributed later this month, to mass market retailers across the United States. This is every fan’s chance to finally have some of the biggest stars of skateboarding right in their own hands.

“I’m psyched to be part of this promotion, it’s a great way to give back to the fans that I may never get the opportunity to personally meet. Good luck to all the collectors,” said legendary rider Ryan Sheckler.
