Goody Trophy jeweled
Exhibit #2716
ShapeStandard (-)
ConstructionOne piece wood
OwnerRick Brough

The Goody "Trophy" was a one piece wooden yo-yo; body came in either all gold or all silver and always included a painted stripe. Unlike the "Champion" with three colored jewels or the original "Rainbow" or reproduction "Rainbow" models, each with three clear jewels and four colored jewels, the Trophy included four jewels; two on each side of the trophy logo on the face of the yo-yo.

Jewel colors were often random on Goody's. Occasionally, however, you may come across a jewel color combination and pattern that shows the production worker put some semblence of thought into it. Such seems to be the case with the model in this exhibit with two outer clear stones being used along with two inner red stones. More often than not, the colors of the embedded jewels were completely random, regardless of the model.

By design, only one halve of the yo-yo included the stamped logo and jewels. Today, multi-jewelled Goody yo-yos, in new or near new condition, are hard to find. Usually they are missing paint, or one or more jewels, or have a poor stamp.

Interestingly, the gold and silver models of this yo-yo are very similar in body color to the gold and silver "Olympic" models sold by Canada's National Yo-Yo (made by Elfverson of Sweden) in the early 1970s.
