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

Bandai Hyper YoYo Hard Gear hat that was available in 1998, between March 15 - August 31. These special THP (Team High Performance) hats were only available directly from Bandai when you mailed in three "Hyper Yo-Yo" logo marks from the back of Jelly drinks. 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 Jelly power drinks, t-shirts, wallets, finger tape, waist packs, and storage cases.
