1990s Antique Roadshow: Two Alien Workshop Stickers

Like many aging skateboarders I got a sticker “collection,” which is to say a ziplock stuffed with dozens of stickers mostly obtained as part of other purchases, and all but a handful of course are from companies that you wouldn’t mention in reputable company. Clive backpacks for instance. The minority of actual good stickers present a problem, because they’re cool enough that you hesitate to plop them onto this month’s board, and eventually you get to a certain point where it’s tough to make the effort to put stickers on anything anyhow. So in the ziplock they sit. These Neil Blender-drawn stickers form the “TimeCode” era are probably the crown jewel of said baggie, alongside some Savier and Seek logo stickers that are certain to haul in thousands on Ebay in a couple decades. I got these second or third-hand from someone who used to work at DNA, and thought I had the Bo Turner one too, but it was either lost to the ages or stuck to something in a fit of pique. Here’s the full set

    don’t have much of a sticker collection, but i did buy a chris cook sticker on ebay (the fucked up looking clown with all the floating eyes) for $5 and did a grip job around it. it looked good.

    I had the thomas morgan t-shirt.

    It was weird because the graphic was super small and dead center on the front of the shirt.

    Ha, perfect explanation of how sticker “collections” come to be.

    Remember Sassy magazine? I have a Sassy sticker that I just never deemed anything worth putting it on. And there it sits, in the bottom of a box with the backing still on.

    i’ve saved every sticker i’ve ever acquired. i keep them in manila folders, after reading this post i think i will move them into zip-locks.

    Ha, I feel the same way about stickers and use both the manila envelope and ziplock bag storage method.
