1974 Donruss Skateboard Stickers

I don't know anything about these stickers, but I picked them up cheap on eBay, so why not, right?

Each sticker is mounted on cardstock and features a "popular" catch-phrase or reference to skaters.

These almost look like they are trying to be of the "Garbage Pail" variety, but instead they are actually 'serious.'  The artwork (to me) is better than the text.

I wonder if this is where they got the idea for "Back to the Future II"

There was gum in the pack, but really, no one wants to see that anymore. The stickers themselves are actually no longer sticky and once peeled off the backing become something like flimsy die-cuts.  It's kinda sad, really.

The irony is that if you found a vintage 70s skateboard with some of these stickers on it, you probably couldn't get them off with a blowtorch.
