RICK NIELSEN

I cannot be certain this is a complete or exhaustive list. Around 2003, the type of v-resin pick plastic Rick prefers started to become more scarce, forcing him to begin using multiple colors, which in turn then also required different print colors. If you have any information that might be helpful, feel free to email me.
