Default Vanguard speed rental wheels?

So I've been noticing some of the wheels on my local rink's "speed" rental skates lately and I thought they said "VANGUARD" on them. Was talking to one of the employees and told him I thought that was cool. Said something to the effect of "I'd love a set of those, brand new, just to sit on a shelf and look cool." That employee is a good friend of mine and when I got to the rink today he told me he had a present for me. He had gone and dug through a BUNCH of boxes and found me a complete set of BRAND NEW Vanguard speed rental wheels.

I know it's silly, but it made my day. How common are these?

I know, right? That's what I thought. It will be a conversation piece on the shelf in my office.

Smile Consider me Jealous

Very cool! I especially love the bright orange color on those! A couple years ago just for fun I picked up a NOS set of Vanguard classics just like these in size and shape, but they're a very dull orange..
