    Posted: Nov/29/2010 at 1:25pm
Hey everyone! New member here, and I have a request. After a skateboard accident a few years back, I haven't really been able to enjoy snowboarding ( broken foot, healed poorly ) and It's been quite a while since I've been on it. I'm trying to sell my board ( not here, don't worry mods ) but It's so rare I can't even find any information on it.

It's a custom Lib Technologies 1999 or 2000 Matt Cummins Limited Edition painted board.

I've searched high and low for information on this board ( for sales purposes ) and I haven't come up with anything. I'm sure there are some avid collectors, and old school riders here who can help me out. I'd greatly appreciate it!

Here are the photos, sorry for the poor quality my iphone is garbage.

Long story short; looking for appraisal/estimated value of my rare board, need help!

I would say between and $50 and $80.  $80 is generous.  If it's brand new, never ridden, maybe $100, but that's just a guess.  I haven't ran into a collector, but if you are just looking to sell it on like ebay or CL, then I guess that's how much it would sell for.


Did you google it?

Really? That's somewhat disappointing. I thought it would be worth more given the limited edition nature and artwork. I know I paid much more than that for it new :)

There are people out there who would pay way more than that for it, problem is you have to find them.  I would email Lib and see how rare it is.....

No offense to Matt, but unless you can find someone who used to ride with him back in the late 80s early 90s or some little kid who use to look up to him and hang out at the University Place Shop all day long when he was working, you probably won't find much interest in the board.  You can never go wrong with Lib Tech though.  If you could post to craigslist in the Northwest area (Gig Harbor, University Place, Tacoma, maybe even further up north near Baker).  All riders in this area from ages 38 and younger should know the cummins family since they own three snowboard shops in WA and might be interested in Matt's board.

Yeah, I think it would be difficult finding a buyer for it - would have to be a specific type of collector to be looking for something like that.  You can always decide how much cash it would take for you to part with it and try putting it up for sale at your asking price to see if there are any takers.  Good luck.

rook, chico, and wdi have great points.  If you're looking for a specific buyer, you would have to find them.  Obviously, you are trying to sell it as artwork and not a snowboard.

Just to keep things in perspective, everything that you can't buy retail now is limited and artwork is based on personal opinion.

What's the condition?  I think I missed that.
Did you google it?

^ It's one of the best boards I've ever been on and I've been on a lot. I'm not sure if Lib Tech has changed things since then, this was made when the first introduced the RibTech AirCoreā„¢ for this style board.

I'm not selling it purely for the artwork, it really is a great ride. It's in good condition for it's age, I definitely used it, with care, always stored in a cushy burton "full" bag. A few minor scrapes here and there, light wear, nothing into the paint or seal however.

I think I'll take your advice and contact Lib to see if I can get some answers. I know it's 1 of 10 made, and I'm 90% sure it's 1 of a kind for the artwork as it's in a series of 10.

Edit: Anyone have an email for anyone at Libtech, or Mervin? Writing a hand written letter is charming, but I don't want to wait a year to hear back.

nice board, there is a classified section here where you can list boards for sale, but i think ebay is the way to go...whole section dedicated to boards like this...http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=vintage+snowboards&_sacat=See-All-Categories

and it's worth more than a hundred bucks!

and this is the place you should try and get in contact with...http://stores.ebay.com/SK8X9

I've always loved lib-tech art work.  But I'm with most people here.  If you listed it on eBay with an infinitely long auction you may find someone interested in buying it as a collector item.  But I strongly doubt it. 

From my point of view, any board older than say 2 years isn't worth much more than $50 (for riding, art collectors excluded).  Technology changes too much.  Between changes to materials and manufacturing techniques, things are a world different than they were 10 years ago.  Boards are lighter, have better flex patterns, and different edges.

I get there are beginners looking to pick up used boards, but my point is there's little advantage for them to buy a 10 y/o Lib over say a brand new Lamar or 5150.  I'm not saying that your board is worthless, I'm just saying good luck finding an interested buyer.  I don't think there's too many people out there collecting wall art.

hmm I think that eBay store is pretty cool, thats a good idea! Yea I wasn't really trying to list it for sale here guys, I was really just trying to get an estimate on it's value to a collector. I'd feel like I was throwing it in the trash if I let it go for 50-100. Personally, if I saw a piece of art, no matter what medium, and I had to have it.. I would pay more than $100 for it.

@RideTimeless - The only thing listed is their address, and I don't want to send them a letter.
