I’m not sure if the first Hard Times with the bum was the most popular or if this one with the cat was. Is it just that people love cats or was it because of the innovative shape as boards were coming closer to evolving (or de-evolving?) into popsicles? Either way Jason Justice really captured the hard times vibe with this graphic and it was a team favorite at the time.
A great wall hanger to go with your soon to be complete Hard Times collection or a great rider as well....might as well grab one to hang and one to ride!
