This ad ruled, the photo, the place, the quotes, everything.

I bought 3 of these Tommy G Hurricane graphic decks when they came out. First thing I did was turpentine the graphics off and hand em over to Dan Tag for some proper ART-STEAMIFICATION and rode em all into the 90’s. They where kinda flat but a cool size for the little guys like me.

How to properly Steam-up a Tommy G Deck.

1. Remove gr

aphics but leave the man’s name on the Board! Respect!

2. Get Dan Tag to draw on it.

3. No matter how much you regret it later allow him (Tag) to draw STEAM using illustrated swimming sperm (on the nose)
