Duncan 1956 Champ Award, style 1
Exhibit #2808
OwnerRick Brough

Duncan Yo-Yo Top "Champ Award" embroidered patch, style 2. It's unknown what a player had to accomplish to earn this patch.

Duncan made two styles of this patch. The style seen in this exhibit has a solid green, flared torch with a solid red flame and two, concentric blue circles. This patch style came out in the mid-1950s.
