LOS ANGELES, CA, October 17, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Today, Mint Road Limited, a new collective of leaders in technology and entertainment announce a partnership with the celebrated and revered organization to ensure its continued longevity in honoring the history and culture of skateboarding. Proceeds from this special NFT drop will be used to further the Skateboarding Hall of Fame's mission, by making improvements to the indoor skatepark, as well as to the museum, and includes the unique opportunity to own the actual physical skateboard hanging in the hall itself.
"Working with the team at Mint Road has been great," says Todd Huber, founder of the Skateboarding Hall of Fame. "This is a unique opportunity to not only show support for our non profit Skateboarding Museum, but to own a piece of history as either an NFT or perhaps even a real board taken directly from our exclusive collection."
"We strive for authenticity and originality in everything we do" says Dana Landry, Co-Founder of Mint Road Limited. "Our plan is to democratize and decentralize the entertainment landscape with upcoming projects to be announced. We thought a perfect partner for our first drop would be one of the most authentic and important organizations in the Hollywood-adjacent but influential world of skateboarding. What Todd has built over the last three decades with the Skateboarding Hall of Fame is one the most inspired and beloved organizations, and we hope that this partnership can further ensure that its longevity is preserved and insured for decades to come"
The "Curator's Collection" is a special, limited-release of 1,020 NFTs based on the 100 most rare and iconic boards from the museum's 1990's/early 2000's collection. Featuring boards from pro skaters and legends like Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, OG Z-Boy Tony Alva, and Torey Pudwell, as well as celebrities and skate industry personalities and pioneers, each one represents a unique time in our history and has an epic story behind it. With 10 variations of each board available to mint, owning all ten grants collectors ownership rights to the actual physical skateboard. Holders can then choose to cash in the NFTs and receive the actual physical board itself, or keep the NFTs and know that special piece of skateboarding history hanging in the HOF is all yours, and can be claimed at any time, with your name immortalized on a plaque next to it.
Additionally, owning any one of the 100 different boards will grant early access to future drops of iconic boards used by the pros, skate art created exclusively for the Skateboard Hall of Fame, exclusive swag contests and giveaways, VIP access to parties and events, as well as red carpet treatment anytime you visit the museum and skatepark.

About the Skateboarding Hall of Fame:
The Skateboarding Hall of Fame and Museum is a 501 c3 Non-Profit Organization and we are the World's First Skateboarding Museum. Established and open to the public since 1997. The Skateboarding Hall of Fame was created to honor the passion and dedication to skateboarding – and contributions to its history and culture – by pro skateboarders and industry / cultural icons throughout the decades. A majority of all NFT sales will be going directly back into the SHOF to support our mission of preserving and sharing skate culture, design new experiences and upgrades to our indoor skatepark, acquire and preserve historic and rare memorabilia, and continue to give free admission to the public so we can pass on our history to the next generation. Since 2009, the skateboarding community has come together each year in Southern California for an induction ceremony to honor and celebrate the latest inductees.
