Featured in this lot is this pair of Bob Blackwood nickel double strap rodeo spurs circa 1970's. The spurs show a wonderfully and professionally crafted stainless steel construction. The spurs show a double strap design to this single piece spur pair with iron spur buttons and a slightly drop shank with brass rounded bumper rowels. The spurs are marked 'BB' for Bob Blackwood. Bob loved rodeo and that love of rodeo and the fact that someone stole his spurs were the catalyst for Blackwood Spurs and Rodeo Equipment Company in 1969. The BB Brand would become the standard for competitors at both ends of the arena, and the twisted shank bull spur BB developed was one of a very few changes to the bull spur since cowboys started riding bulls. The condition of this pair of spurs is good with no obvious signs of damage and in good overall condition. The measurements of this pair of spurs are 1 7/8" x 8" x 4 1/4".
