Half A Million Dollar Skateboard Collection
A skateboard enthusiast believes he has amassed the world’s largest collection - worth over half a million dollars. Skateboard mega collector Todd Huber estimates he’s spent over $100,000 on boards and related memorabilia – although recent valuations of the collection are more than five times Todd’s original spend. Who knew something like collecting skateboards can yield such a substantial profit?
The 51-year-old, originally from San Francisco but now living in Simi Valley, California, had been keeping his collection in a one-car garage - much to his wife’s dismay. The 5,000 skateboards are now housed in a 30,000 square feet warehouse, which also includes a shop, indoor skatepark and, according to Todd, 'the very first Skateboard museum ever in the world'.
Todd Huber has purchased many different skateboards from many different places to add to his collection. Maybe he has seen some of the best selling skateboards on Amazon and seen some of the unique and crazy designs there.
