The Royal Master Yo-Yo Top, No. 59.

"Precision designed by the original yo-yo experts to rigid tournament specifications."

"These tricks [Walking the dog, Around the world, Over the falls, Rocking the baby, Stars, Sleeping beauty, Milking the cow, and Loop the loop] can only be performed with our Yo-Yos from 49 cents and up."

Made by Royal Tops Manufacturing Company, Incorporated, Long Island City 1, New York. Note that the address does not have a ZIP code. Instead, it uses a postal zone number that was implemented in 1943. The "1" in the address above indicates the postal zone in Long Island City. Given the "modern" packaging, it is likely that this yo-yo was sold between 1960 and 1965.

The card is pre-printed with a price of 59 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
