A large – 33.7cm diameter – wall or window poster advertising the genuine Duncan Yo-Yo. This poster is from around the the late 1970s into the 1980s.

Unlike other Duncan circular posters from the past, the version in this exhibit did not mention the Duncan Yo-Yo Tournament Top, Model 77. Gone as well was the silhouette image of Duncan's Mr. Yo-Yo character standing on a base pedestal with an oversized hand throwing down a yo-yo. Instead, this poster featured a slightly updated Duncan Mr. Yo-Yo image that was commonly found on Duncan string packs at the time.

From the late 1940s and into the 1980s, these large, round, eye-catching posters were often seen in store windows, or on a wall inside the store near a counter display box of Duncan yo-yos. While the poster size never changed, the yo-yo image and colors varied slightly. Some were printed with a yellow or blue yo-yo body with a black stripe, and some with a red yo-yo body with and without a black stripe. And, as the years went by, there were slight design variations made to the center text and imagery as well.
