A two-color Cheerio Yo-Yo silver or second place award patch.

White embroidery stitching on heavy blue felt. It's fairly uncommon to find Cheerio felt patches that have been cleaned or washed, especially if they were sewn onto a shirt or jacket. The main reason was because the felt portion was not colorfast. As such, these vintage felt patches are often in very good condition. Note also that Cheerio did not use a mesh backing cloth to add structure and resiliency to this patch. This patch is likely from the U.S., post-1954. If it was from Canada, it would have "Yo-Yo" embroidered on it.

The shape of this patch is similar to the Cheerio District Champion patch, just on a reduced scale.

In 1954, Duncan bought out the Cheerio brand in the U.S. but did not promote the product line. As such, by the early to mid 1960s, the Cheerio Yo-Yo brand disappeared from the United States.
