Sotheby’s to Auction The Only Complete Archive of Supreme Skate Decks

For years Supreme has been a very sought after brand. But following the streetwear brand’s collaboration with Louis Vuitton, the demand and notoriety of the brand has reached new heights. It has, therefore, come as no surprise that when the sale of the only complete archive of Supreme skate decks was announced by Sotheby’s it made headlines.

This rare collection acts as a time-capsule of over 20 years worth of models. Sold as a single lot, the archive contains all 248 decks produced by Supreme between 1998 and 2018. This exceptional collection of Supreme skate decks were diligently assembled over decades by Ryan Fuller.

Running from now until 20 January 2019, this unique collection will be on display at the Sotheby’s New York Galleries. In a statement Ryan Fuller stated:

This unique collection is the only one of its kind in existence including every deck that Supreme has ever released, dating all the way back to 1998. It represents a full range of decks including general releases, extremely limited artist’s collaborations, and both the recalled (unofficial) Louis Vuitton monogram print decks from the year 2000 and the official Louis Vuitton collaboration deck and trunk from 2017. Older releases become increasingly difficult to find as years go by, and it is therefore likely this will remain the only complete collection in private hands.

The auction is set to attract Supreme fans, streetwear collectors, lovers of design and investors to the sale in droves. With the global attraction, Sotheby’s have announced that the sale will be concluded through their online platform. The single sale is estimated to sell for between US$800 000 and US$1.2 million. Despite this many experts expect the sale to far exceed that considering the current desirability around the brand.

Some highlights from the Supreme Skate Decks Sale include Artist & artist estate collaborations with Jake & Dinos Chapman, Dan Colen, George Condo, Damien Hirst, KAWS, Jeff Koons, Ryan McGinnes, Marilyn Minter, Takashi Murakami, Nate Lowman, Richard Prince and Rammellzee.

Other highlights of the collection include the ‘last supper’ set, based on the famous Leonardo Da Vinci fresco. Also included in this set is the deck depicting Christ that was only released in Japan. Also forming part of the collection is the much coveted

Perhaps the most coveted part of the collection is the Monogram Decks that charted the origin for the Louis Vuitton x Supreme Fall Winter 2017 collection. This includes the famous Boite Skateboard Trunk and deck from 2017. It also includes the infamous unauthorised and recalled Logo set from 2000.
