A collection of privately-owned Supreme skate decks recently sold at Sotheby's for a whopping $800,000, just $200,000 shy of the expected $1 million price, making it the highest amount ever paid for a skate deck assortment at auction. The arsenal includes every Supreme deck every created, totaling 248 pieces.
The decks were made by Supreme between 1998 and 2018, as the sale averaged more than $3,200 per skate deck. The range was purchased by Vancouver collector Carson Guo.
The collection of Supreme decks was curated by Ryan Fuller and Ross Wilson for an exhibition titled 20 Years of Supreme. The skate decks include rare designs like Louis Vuitton-monogrammed iterations from 2000 and the complete “The Last Supper” set, in addition to highly coveted collaborations with artists such as George Condo, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons and Takashi Murakami, among others.
According to Sotheby's, buyer Carson Guo will display the decks in a new shop opening in 2020.
