    I was hoping you all could help me identify this Frogskins here? Is there anything special about them or are they just your everyday Frogs? Sorry I have pretty much 0 knowledge about Frogskins.

    A guy I ride with, has a co-worker who is trying to sell these. He knew I had a bunch of different Oakleys and thought I might be interested in buying these. I like the colors so I'm kind of tempted to get them. I was just trying to figure out what they were, and if they are more collectable or if they are an every day "normal, run of the mill" type pair

    They are old 1985 - 1990 if they have the matching box and all the other accompaniments that came with them they would be worth in my opinion about $120 as they don't appear to be in brand new condition. Just the glasses alone are cool I don't know what he is asking for them but I wouldn't go more than say $50 - $75.

    This is just my opinion and the prices are subjective. I am not a gen 1 frogskin expert so hopefully someone wiser than I can chime in and speak towards value.

    The guy I ride with thinks he wants $60 or $75 for them. I'm just waiting to hear back for sure. I do know that he doesn't have a box or bag to go along with them. I appreciate all the help you have provided. I had no clue about these. This is another great reason I love this forum.

    Any Gen 1 experts out there with an opinion of these?

    One of the rarer color ways from gen one. I think a steal for $75 despite the lens scratches. I'll buy them if you're hesitant.

    Definitely buy them.

    Royal Blue is a hard color to find and I'd say they're worth at least $100 ...

    Thank you guys. I just bought them for $50. He is going to ship them tomorrow (I didn't realize he was out of town). This will be my first pair of Frogskins. If I'm not a fan of them, look for them on here for sale or trade.
