Anyone have one of these they'd be willing to part with?
I have lots to trade, including:
-perfectly seasoned dx cheetahs 8.4/10
-offcenter X out FL (the real Firebird Leopard)
-Champion Teerex (No, not the X)
-Pearly, big bead aviars, a little ink, just says "Rage"
-The real OR tdg first run DFL trophy (not the one Bob broke)
-rare, disc dye workshop rejects (Cro with a raven dye, Orc with a Goblin dye)
-2008 GNO player's pack shirt (the "typo")
-Sines decoder ring - sold
-some of the desert dust from the treads of Wiggin's right shoe (yep his planting foot) from the day he broke the world distance record
Or we could do straight cash. PM me, like my facebook or @nightshiftbigbead11x
Ah, the 2008 Great "Nortwest" Open shirt....there's a small piece of the Roc puzzle in that story too. The discs had it spelled correctly, but the shirt was missing the "h". And what was amongst the players pack disc choices? The re-introduction of the San Marino Roc, in DX. Yeah, I picked one up.
Supposedly these San Marino discs were from a mold that went missing back in 1993 but was returned in an unmarked box on the steps of the factory in Rancho Cucamonga.... Some people say the San Marino was the most overstable of all the Roc molds, and that Dave Dunipace ran some San Marino's in glow CE on the night shift right before the mysterious CE "supply" problems forced Innova to stop offering that plastic. Immediately after that run, parts of the mold went missing. Word on the street was that Discraft had them and with some subtle alterations they produced the Buzz. If you get one of those first run Buzzes from 93 in a darker color and you sand the flight plate near the rim with some ultrafine sandpaper, then submerge the disc in black Rit dye (the old formulation) overnight in your refrigerator, you can make out the San Marino and the patent number.
By the way, those Dave Dunipace 1993 nightshift glow CE San Marino Rocs are killer, and really the only good Rocs.
P.S. Lund - that "rage" inked BB pearly Aviar is mine. I threw it into a lake in Oshkosh WI in '95. Not sure where you found it, but you can give it to a newbie.
