Blog to Watch –

Vintage Awesomeness

This is a great idea for a site. is a throwback blog focusing on out of production yo-yos and mods.

They started on the 12th and have the ground running including showing off an incredible rare Duncan promotional item from the 50’s.

The blog is in Italian, but the Google Translator does wonders.

    That picture you show of Hopalong is actually a FAKE and not a vintage yo-yo. I asked Lucky about these and someone just photocopied the packaging and shrink wrapped it.

      Well that is unfortunate, luckily I don’t think they were selling it and it does not sound like they paid that much for it. is still a pretty nice blog. I am curious to see what else they get up.
