Brand-X FLAGSHIP 3 Reissue Deck on our original 80s pig, with our insane new LOVE SEAT, more aggressive concave.
This was one of the first graphics Bernie Tostenson created at Brand-X in 1983. It is particularly exciting because, until now we had only seen this graphic in random images in our files and an ad mock-up that wasn't used. But now, we've got our hands on possibly the only existing original deck. This graphic, known as the FLAGSHIP 3, is a continuation of Bernie's FLAGSHIP SERIES, he first used when he was at Sims. Bernie did this many times, first with the Sims Lester Kasai splash, which morphed into the Brand-X DedHed splash, and then the Brand-X Phase 3, which is the third in the series which started with the Sims Brad Bowman Fingerprint Street deck. You'll also notice, Bernie did this while at Vision - where he went when he left Brand-X in 1989. Some of the Vision graphics of that era are an evolution of Brand-X graphics, like the Brand-X Sean Goff pro model and the Vision Clown Deck.
