Raymond Pettibon x The Skateroom New Collab Decks


Missed out on Raymond Pettibon x The Skateroom’s limited-edition run of decks back in March?

Toss your regret aside because they’ve dropped yet another collab, featuring Pettibon’s baseball-themed works No Title (The raised hands…) and No Title (Boston Brave). The decks will be released in two limited-editions of 250, and depict baseball player Warren Spahn in the middle of throwing a left-handed pitch. ‘To draw someone with a wetsuit or a tight, double-knit baseball outfit doesn’t lend itself to what I’m looking to describe,’ Pettibon explains. ‘It’s just one snapshot; I’m trying to depict something that is an action. If you draw a baseball player, for instance, with the old-time baggy flannels, you can depict the action better than you can with something that looks painted on to his body. […] But it’s also meant to go back in time to when baseball had a more of a larger-than-life epic quality.’

Can you skate it? Yeah, I guess, but at $750 USD a pop, you’d be an idiot. This is strictly wall-hanging material. Similar to their first collab, the proceeds from this range will go towards the construction of Skateistan’s first-ever skateboarding school in Bamyan, Afghanistan, as well as the programs for their students.

Get your hands on the decks on The Skateroom or the MoMA Design Store website for $750 USD.
