Tony Hawk

My Very 1st Skateboard

Is Going to the SMITHSONIAN!

6/14/2013 9:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0614-tony_hawk_instagramIt's the deck that created a legend ... and now the very first skateboard that Tony Hawk ever owned is going to be enshrined forever in the Smithsonian!

Hawk just posted a photo of his original beat-up board -- made by the Bahne skateboard company -- and we're guessing the item has got to be worth a friggin' fortune.

The board will officially go into the museum during the Innoskate on June 22 -- an event honoring innovators in skate culture.

Fun Fact -- This will be the SECOND Tony Hawk board in the museum ... just a few years ago, he donated one of his faves that he rode in 1987.

So this is what our civilization has come to ---- national museums exhibiting skateboards as their most exquisite treasures. The apocalypse can't be far behind.

braintrain, I'm saying "who", but not because I think I am better, cause I am a nobody. I am saying who, because I have no freakin clue who he is, and why this persons equipment is there. I thought the Smithsonian was for inventions. So unless he created the skateboard, wtf is it there??

I don't know about the Smithsonian that is a little bit of a stretch. I could see if there was like a skateboard Hall of Fame or something alone those lines...

This is insulting. Wish I was a celebrity and could donate my useless junk to a famous museum. I got some old socks they can display right next to Edison's lightbulb!!
