Tony Hawk will donate his first skateboard to the Smithsonian
Tony Hawk, 45, scored his first skateboard at 9 years old, which makes it older than dirt. And now, that very skateboard will be forever displayed in the Smithsonian museum.
Hawk snapped a photo of the infamous board and posted on his Instagram with the caption:
"I will be donating my first skateboard to the Smithsonian June 22 during the #innoskate event (with Rodney Mullen)."
With Hawk being the John Lennon of pro skateboarding, it's safe to say this beat up board is worth a pretty penny.
