World Industries Catalog #1.
This is a World Industries and related companies catalog from late 1991 or possibly very early 1992. It's 12 pages long and I'm going to post three pages each day this week. There is a cereal theme to the whole thing and there is even a page of cereal reviews. The catalog is a little rough around the edges in places.
For the 101 page, that is Kris Markovich's first board after leaving G & S.
Mullen's Rock Is King is awesome. I think the story behind that was that Sean Cliver and Marc McKee came up with the idea, made the boards without Rodney's knowledge and then made sure the decks were in shops when Rodney was on tour so that would be the first time he ever saw them. There is also the first Jeremy Klein Japanimation girl deck. I had the Bean Cup wheels.
Way to land a shoe model, Chromeball.
Does that mean people from the big companies look at my website, too?
