Flashback Product of the Week: 1976 Donruss Skateboard Stickers & Bubble Gum


Here we have another neat little artistic set made by Donruss back in 1976.  Skateboard Stickers & Bubble Gum is a set that consists of 44-cards/stickers.  The artwork was done by comic-book artist Alex Niño who has worked with DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Warren Publishing, and Heavy Metal magazine in the past.  On browsing through the set you can see why Donruss would pick an artist like Niño.  It is filled with crazy skateboarding creatures.  The demand for these stickers isn’t all that good.  Full boxes with all their packs can sell for as little as $20.00.  Two years later in 1978 Donruss released another skateboarding product called All-Pro Skateboard.  This set contains artistic monsters as well as actual skateboarding photos.
