POWELL PERALTA DECK SKULL AND SWORD PASTEL 9.05 X 32.95
The Rodriguez "Skull & Sword" deck was the first pro signature deck graphic produced by Powell-Peralta. The graphic was conceived by Ray and Illustrated by V.C. Johnson with art direction from George Powell in 1979.
Initially released in two distinctly different shapes; a 10 x 30 Wide tail version and a 10 x 28.5 Snub Nose, it came in Brite-Lite Dayglo yellow, orange, purple and green. In years to follow, it was made in various different colours and a Powell-Peralta logo was added. In 1983 Ray's signature was removed and replaced with a Powell-Peralta script logo. The graphic was also used for T-shirts and stickers.
Originally Released: 1979
