Sponsors and Curators
The Museum of Yo-Yo History is a labor of love, and we would not be able to stay up-to-date with exhibits without the support of our sponsors and curators. Big thanks go to One Drop Design and Duncan for supplying us with their latest models, YoYoExpert for their help and support, and to Cody Orr, TotalArtist and YoYoBrothers™ for allowing us to use their collections!

If you're a manufacturer, or just a big collector and you want to help support the Museum drop me at line at chimera@yoyomuseum.com
Royal Standard - No. 69
Exhibit #2649
ShapeStandard (-)
PackagingBubble Carded
ConstructionMulti-piece plastic
OwnerRick Brough

This yo-yo came out about the same time as the Royal Champions string pack, 3 for 10 cents, seen here.

The stamp of the 5-point crown on this yo-yo is slightly incomplete. There should be a thin gold line just below the crown to complete the oval shape. Something to watch for if you collect Royal yo-yos.

Back of card talks about Royal yo-yo contests and that "There are only a few -- Watch on local TV station for announcement". The back of the card also has a space to print your name, address, and zip code but it doesn't tell you what you do with the information or where to send it or whether you just bring it to a contest.

The card is pre-printed with a price of 69 cents. Many Royal cards from this same time period had a pre-printed price that was identical to the yo-yo's model number. See the following exhibits:
Royal – Tournament, No. 409, 49¢ US
Royal – Master, No. 59, 59¢ US
Royal – Standard, No. 69, 69¢ US
Royal – Monarch, No. 100, $1.00 US
