Burton Custom Limited Edition Sobe board

Has anyone ever heard of these before?

I'm bidding on one now that is in an eBay auction that will end in the next few minutes.

Burton Custom Sobe 58 snowboard - eBay (item 160318467230 end time Mar-01-09 17:07:49 PST)

I'm just trying to verify that it is an actual Burton Custom board, just with the Sobe graphics. I couldn't really find any info on it. When the auction ends I'm gonna ask the seller for pics of the tag on the board because you can't really see it in the picture up close.

I should note that there is also a 09 Custom - Sobe board on eBay that shows the tag, that's why I'm not too concerned on bidding on this one.

Here is the 09 one

I remember there was someone with a sobe board and I think someone said companies can get boards made for them by snowboarding companies. It might be legit. Just to be safe I would get a real custom, but thats just my opinion. You could probably get one for the same or a bit more money on ebay.

Gonna call them first thing tomorrow to see. The guy is also going to send me pictures of the tag, but I'm guessing it's going to be just like the 09 I posted the link for so I think it's legit.

I also picked up an 09 Ride Prophet Board this week off of Brocity!

Looks good to me. (But I'm not entirely sure. I think burtons are made in Vermont but maybe the special order ones are made in China?)Did the guy say anything about what to look for in a real one?

Probably me, i said i had one in one of my first posts. Not a burton though, it just says Sobe on the tail, is black with green flames coming off the nose, and has a green base with lizard sillouettes. Really mediocre board, i'll see if i can get some pics up soon.
