Tom, I did not not realize Ann Connolly was your daughter. Wow, that is awesome. I have been gone too long.
Everyone thanks for posting pictures of your older yo-yos, dusty or not. Here are some of my BC and Tom Kuhn yo-yos. It’s great to recognize some of the old names and characters popping up in this thread.
BTW, I think we need more pictures taken from bellow yo-yo tricks. The photoshoped composite photo won me an AL Parana yo-yo from Europe in a photo contest back in the day.
Inventor of the apparatus!!!
Some dusty, some not cause I still like throwing the oldies
Someone asked for a recent picture… next to a soccer field surrounded by corn fields somewhere in central PA. Throwing a AL Dream into some name unknown to me trick that I was taught at MAR in in the early 2000’s.
The packaging was a little dusty but the yoyos are dust free.
Duncan Freehands on uncut sheet of pogs. Yo-Yo Ninja Boy!
Those gt’s are so cool. Had no idea they did like a freehand edition. That’s sick.
I miss scarecrow Sometimes. Sigh.
Check out that center hub! For sure would make it a B-Grade today. Nah, just anodize it…
I think the story is that Tom did this as a gibe at Henry’s, because of the patent they have (expired?) for rubber shells on a yoyo. I’m sure those patent #s, so prominent on the face, are part of the ribbing!
Subbed for the Pics.
Man, you guys are old!
Get off my lawn.
Yeah. I never got one of those. Those weren’t “OG Steve Brown” they were “OG Tom Van Dan Elzen trolling me” ha ha ha
