When Royal began making reproductions of their yo-yos in early 2000s, they included this vintage patch for free with an order. It's unknown how a player earned this award when it was originally available in the 50s, although it may be categorized similarly to the year-dated Duncan Winner award patches.

A beautiful, balanced design.
