Sacred Craft- Del Mar Show Grounds October 8th and 9th
Anouncment from Scott Bass of Scared Craft:
The upcoming Sacred Craft Consumer Surf Expo has something for everybody – even antique collectors. The Collectible Surfboard & Surf Memorabilia “Antique Roadshow” is modeled after PBS TV’s highly successful “Antique Roadshow” series.
“The power of the “Roadshow” lies in the ‘buried treasure concept,’” said Scott Bass, Expo Director. “Many of us possess, in our garage or attic, or perhaps under the house, a collectible surfboard; a board that for whatever reason holds intrinsic value above and beyond the value of a regular or ‘normal’ used surfboard. If the board has a strong provenance, well, this generally increases its value. Perhaps it was on the cover of a surf magazine, or George Greenough pulled into the barrel on it during filming of “Innermost Limits of Pure Fun.” Whatever the case, our appraisers want to see it.”
But ‘roadshow’ isn’t just about surfboards. Surf ‘paper’, as the experts refer to it, is also of import to the collectors and appraisers. Maybe you possess an old Rick Griffin surf movie poster from the Santa Monica Civic, or a Malibu Pro surf contest program, or perhaps a business card from Tom Blake or signed photo of Duke Kahanamoku Any item that you think may be worth something, the appraisers would love to see it, and to help you better understand its provenance and possible market value. The more information you can bring to the discussion, the more accurate the appraisal.
We all probably have a bit of buried treasure; we just may not know it! The Collectible Surfboard “Antique Roadshow” appraisals will visit the Del Mar Fairgrounds one day only, on Saturday October 8 from 10am-4pm as a part of the 2-day Sacred Consumer Surfboard Expo. Expert appraisers, including Bird Huffman from Bird’s Surf Shed and experts from the Surfing Heritage FoundationCalifornia Surf Museum, and Damion from Boardcollector.com will be on hand for surfboards, surf ‘paper’, surf posters, surf magazines, surf art, surf books and surf memorabilia.Please bring out your surf collectibles for appraisal – and a great time.
