Damien Hirst's Spin on Supreme Skate Decks

For me, Damien Hirst's spin art series is difficult to evaluate in the context of fine art. How does it materially differ from the spin art created by anyone else at a carnival or street fair? Here Hirst has created three limited edition designs for Supreme skateboard decks based on his spin art. Unfortunately, the size of the edition is unknown, so the collector who bought these can't really be certain how many more are out there. Would it be reasonable to assume that virtually none of these skate decks were actually used for skateboarding?
