Default Old/Vintage Boards?

Does anyone else collect old/vintage snowboards? I want to start so I just picked up this Haakon Air today to kick off the collection.

I don't collect...if anything, I try to get rid of extra snowboards (in fact, I'm still riding the same board I got in 2008...although, this rocky season has pretty much killed it).

The Haakon board is interesting. It's obviously a Burton...guessing it's Terje's first sig model (?) Cool shape and quite a bit of setback. What year is it?

Yea Terje's first pro board..burton '94. I wonder how it would ride, it is quite a bit stiffer than I thought it would be. Its pretty cool, no techy stuff back then, no sidewalls or cap construction. Looking at it from the side you see the core, the top and bottom fiberglass all just sandwiched together. There are a couple other boards that I want to keep my eyes out for..mainly looking for rare boards or iconic ones of the 80's and 90's.
