Ok so are there collectable snowboards? Do I happen to have one?

Ok so I am sure some of the originals are collectible...if I still had my first board the 1987 Burton Elite 150 it would probably be worth something to someone. But in doing some research on the last board I bought (in 1994) before I took many years off I think I am starting to find out that it may be something of a rare and somewhat collectible board...it is a '93/'94 Lib Tech Matt Cummings the first year they used the kink tip design.

So what is the best way to sell a collectible board? eBay? Is this really collectible?

I doubt you will get much for it, you can buy ancient wooden ski's from the 50's for like 40 bucks at antique stores and flea markets, id say throw it on ebay if you really wanna get rid of it, who knows, some one may be a collector

Id say hang it on the wall and enjoy the memories.

Well if I am not going to sell it then I am going to ride it. I saw a discussion on another snowboarding forum about this model and some guy who lost an auction on eBay Germany for one though he didn't say for how much. Basically if it is a collectible board that someone would buy I want to stop riding it ASAP so that I don't damage it.

Youre still riding your board from '94?

You're Wild.

Um no I didn't ride from 1995 until a couple weeks ago, board has been in my basement. My son wanted to try boarding so I got it out and rented him some gear for a day. He fell all over the place but loves it so I bought him a 09/10 Burton Chopper and I am thinking I may get a new board too...but not just to throw money away, the MC was/is a great board.

Took a quick look on ebay, there are a couple of old "collectible" boards on there going from 40-100$. Im sure you could get rid of it, but I dunno if you would get anything worth the effort for it.

Rarity

It certainly is a collectable, you've been hanging on to it for the last 16 years.
