The Snowboard, was described by the seller as an original Burton 140 Performer "Black Widow" Experimental Series. Made in 1983 and ridden by Burton Team rider, Bob Novak.

The seller also stated (in the listing) Novak had signed the board which was only 1 of 7 produced for the team. Adding; "The last time this board was used Bob (Novak) took 1st Place in the downhill @ Pando Ski Area in 1984."

This is the second-time in the past year that we've tracked a Burton exceeding five-figures.
