Metallica + Nyjah Huston Skateboard with lyrics from “Fade To Black”: Unique skateboard collaboration supporting Tony Hawk Foundation’s Boards + Bands program.

Skate legend Nyjah Huston has teamed up with GRAMMY award-winning band Metallica to create this one-of-a-kind artifact—Nyjah Huston’s personal ridden skate deck with one of his favorite song lyrics (“Fade To Black”) written on it and signed personally by James Hetfield.

The board is a 7-ply maple-laminate Element brand Nyjah Huston custom pro model. The board includes a multicolor design, and it has all the signature wear and tear you would expect from a professional athlete. James Hetfield then painted the lyrics to Metallica’s hit song “Fade To Black” on the deck by hand. Such an artifact from these icons of the skate and music worlds has never existed before, and it can be yours.

This special skateboard collaboration is part of the nonprofit Tony Hawk Foundation’s Boards + Bands program. Funds raised through this effort will support the Tony Hawk Foundation and its mission to bring the benefits of free, public skateparks to at-risk youth throughout the world.

Each Boards + Bands skateboard collaboration is a truly unique, one-of-a-kind item and the Estimated Value listed is based on recent auction results. Some Boards + Bands decks have sold for over $38,000 in prior years so bid often to take home these exclusive skateboards!
