Hot Dog

I don't know a lot about skateboards so when I saw this one at the thrift store, I didn't immediately purchase it. I went home and looked it up on Ebay. One in mint condition sold for $135.06 at auction. Of course, I went back to get it. This one is in bad shape but I'm hoping someone will still buy it.

It is a longboard by Sears Roebuck and Co. I believe it is from the 60's. At one time, it said Hot Dog on it. It is wood with clay wheels. I'm pretty sure one of my cousins taught me how to skateboard on one of these in the late 70's early 80's. (yes, I'm well aware I revealed my age)

  1. Nice find! I haven't had much luck with skateboards recently, but yours seems to be a definite relic from the Sixties. Seems to me, someone will scoop it up as a "wall hanger".
