About the Skull and Sword Artwork:

The Rodriguez "Skull & Sword" deck was the first pro signature deck graphic produced by Powell-Peralta. The graphic was conceived by Ray and Illustrated by V.C. Johnson with art direction from George Powell in 1979. 

Initially released in two distinctly different shapes; a 10" x 30" "Widetail" version and a 10" x 28.5" "Snub Nose,” it came in "Brite-Lite" Dayglo yellow, orange, purple and green. In years to follow, it was made in various different colors and a Powell-Peralta logo was added. In 1983 Ray's signature was removed and replaced with a Powell-Peralta script logo. The graphic was also used for T-shirts and stickers.

Originally Released: 1979

Artwork by: Vernon Courtlandt Johnson

About Powell Peralta Patches:

  • Powell Peralta embroidered patch
  • 3.5" diameter
  • iron-on backing


  • Denim and cotton material provide the best base. Be careful of polyester.
  • Put the item on a hard surface, like an ironing board. Iron it to create a nice, flat surface.
  • Place the patch where you want it to be.
  • Heat up the iron to it's hottest setting.
  • Place a thin cloth over the patch. (This will protect the patch and any surrounding material).
  • Place the iron over the patch and press down hard as possible for 15-30 seconds.
  • Remove the iron and let patch cool.
  • Check the patch by gently rubbing at the edge, trying to lift it. If it lifts, replace the thin material and iron again for 10- 15 seconds.
  • To ensure a secure patch you can also sew around the edges.

My son was so stoked with this patch! It was bigger than we thought and looks great on his school backpack. (Posted on 8/9/2021)
Nostalgia! Review by Adam
Bought a small Nike Sb bag and my wife was kind enough to have it sown on. Every time some recognizes the patch it reminds them of the skating days. (Posted on 5/17/2021)
Rad Skull and Sword patch! Review by Larry
This patch is well made and looks great on my denim jacket with all my other patches. It’s iron on or you can sew on, just make sure you look up iron on instructions so you don’t ruin your patch. (Posted on 2/22/2021)
