Vintage Burton Snowboards

Post by sooopernaught »

Came across these at a thrift store. They definitely look and feel (and smell) vintage. Curious as to whether these are early authentic Burton shirts before they had their own label or some knock-offs done by a board shop. Both have the same tag and neither have a date.

Seems like something out of the 90s. Knockoffs usually opt to dirt cheap tees - I don't think lee blanks would be used. I think you're safe - but a Burton expert I am not.
