Bandai Hyper Yo-Yo - Alex Garcia THP
Exhibit #3463
OwnerRick Brough

Bandai Hyper YoYo Hard Gear hat from 1998. These special THP (Team High Performance) hats were only available directly from members of THP. In this case, from U.S. National Yo-Yo Contest champion Alex Garcia. The "Yo for it! Alex Garcia T•H•P" is machine embroidered. The left side of the hat has a Bandai patch and a Yomega patch sewn onto it. Both companies were sponsors of the talented THP that travelled the USA and Japan putting on yo-yo demonstrations and promotions.

In the late 90s, a variety of "Hard Gear" pieces were marketed to go along with the Duncan, Bandai, and Yomega yo-yos that were sold. Some of these items included head and wrist sweat bands, face towels, neckerchiefs, gloves, portable power drinks, t-shirts, wallets, finger tape, waist packs, and storage cases.
