info seeker Flores Yo Yo


#1

Hello All,

I purchased a Flores yo yo at auction and would appreciate any help you can give me.
I am not a collector so I do not know anything about this piece.
If you could give me any info I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!

I looked on Lucky’s website and (guy with largest collection in the world) and it says the highest one has ever been sold is $2400. How much did you pay?


#3

I purchased both yo yos in picture for a pretty cheap price.
I appreciate your response
The auction house said they came from the estate of an antique store owner
I was mainly seeking info on the Flores and an estimate on its worth.

This is actually an accurate portrayal of Flores’s dealings with the yoyo industry.

As far as price goes, I can’t be sure on an estimate, but it can vary from absolutely nothing, to quite a pretty penny. The O-Boy will probably get you around 30-40 dollars, depending on who you’re dealing with. Can’t say I’ve ever dealt with a Flores YoYo before.

The flores yoyos vary wildy in price from one day to the next really… I’ve seen them go on ebay for under 100 and over 1000.

You might try tracking down a guy named Eric Wolff, or contacting Lucky Meisenheimer… they would be able to tell you all about it.
