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!

Cheerio Official Champion wing, ver. 2
Exhibit #2721
Size130 mm tall
Width262 mm
OwnerRick Brough

A large Official Cheerio Champion wing patch from the early to mid 1950s. The patch is 262 mm wide x 130 mm tall. Cheerio award patches were almost always made from felt and were not color-fast. As a general rule, you should never try to clean a Cheerio felt patch.

This patch is considered version 2. Note that "CHEERIO" is embroidered in block lettering. Version 1 has italicized lettering, instead. A very subtle difference.

See version 1 of this patch being worn by Canadian yo-yo demonstrator Allan Howard Graff circa 1952.

Compare this patch with the Cheerio Contest Winner patch also from the early 50s.
