This week’s Dust Bunny is two pages scanned from a World Industries catalog titled “World Pigbait” mailed to me in my youth. Postmarked March 11th, 2002 and March 13th, 2002 (I guess the metered postage wasn’t enough the first go around) from Torrance, CA – I was over the moon when this arrived. With a total of 6 pages, it included Bootsy Collins on the cover and product from all of the World subsidiaries. I scanned the 101 and Plan B pages. The Blind page had the Jordan Richter “Safety Gear” board, which I didn’t deem appropriate for the post. The catalog also included pages for Fuct and Liberty Skates.


I’ve always liked the Natas “Hard Boiled” deck and Ben Reigle had the Gabriel Rodriguez wrestling deck. Of all those pictured, I only owned the Danny Way “Shotgun” deck that I actually traded for the first Kareem Campbell deck on Blue. It had a row of cartoon rabbits on it, if I recall correctly. At this point, I’d love to have that Danny Way deck back. I’ve seen a questionable version of it pop up on eBay from time to time.

 

Enjoy and be sure to check back for the next Dust Bunny.

  3. I have a 101 Gabriel vs the crusher deck for sale. Pretty rare stuff now. I’m the original owner. Good condition, not broken, sturdy and solid wood, Graph not peeled or anything. Email me for pics and detail.
