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
Duncan 1948 Winner, yellow star
Exhibit #3411
OwnerRick Brough

This 1948 Duncan Yo-Yo Winner shield patch marks the first year that Duncan used an embroidered yellow star as opposed to embroidered white star. The white star had been used on Winner patches since 1935. The yellow star would continue to be used on Winner and Champion patches until 1959. In 1958 and 1959, Duncan Yo-Yo Expert patches began to use a blue and a red star, respectively.

Nineteen forty-eight is the year Duncan resumed yo-yo production and contests after a five year hiatus due to World War II.
