These are some Baker boards we had in the shop years ago. Probably 2002 – 2008 ish. You can see some of these are actual product shots still wrapped in plastic. We’re trying to preserve some of these decks for archival purposes.
A is for Andew. A is for Atlanta. Andrew is from Florida. Atlanta is in Georgia. Maybe it’s a connection to Dirty South. Not sure. Good looking graphic though. This deck apparently came in different color ways.
This was a “Photo Series” of boards they did. There’s a similar one below of Terry Kennedy.
It’s basically the best movie ever made. It’s all about story telling.
Baker logo decks always looked good. The genius of them is the branding. Big and blocky. Can’t miss it at the skate park or in video footage.
Yep those look like prison shanks. If you ever see those in real life, you’re not in a good situation. Which brings up a point I like to make. U.S. prisons are violent. Thai prisons are not. The U.S.A. is a hella violent place in general. Why do I live here?
Everyone goes through a Bowie phase at some point in their life.
Hammers. What are hammer? Hammers are makes. But big ones. Like nollie backside flip down the Wilshire 15. That’d a be a hammer. Assuming no one has done it down that set yet. Greco would go out and get hammers. Hammers build video parts. A part doesn’t need to be all hammers. But the more hammers you have, the better your part will be. And the longer your skate career will be. At least that’s how it worked back in the day.
Now this particular board graphic is a rip off of an old Metallica album called Kill em All. Good album too.
Get it? Pop Head? Lol. I meant Pot Head.
Another genius deck. Branding galore. Marketers learn from skateboarding.
