Just like the title asks, what is the Holy Grail of yoyos? I’ve collected cards since I was around 5-6 years old (1986) but started out only collecting baseball. The holy grails for baseball and basketball are pretty much the Mickey Mantle graded rookie and Michael Jordan graded rookie which I never obtained as a child to even have graded later if had gotten one. I finally bought a Jordan a couple years ago BGS 9 with sub grades of 9.5,9.5,9,9 for top dollar just to get the best “mint” holy grail as possible. I truly think it could be regraded and recieve a 9.5 gem mint over all grade.
The feeling of opening the package when it arrived was so gratifying. I finally possessed my most saught after card that I’d been chasing since I was a mere child. I had bought several others just to have in my collection throughout the years but none of them were near BGS mint graded quality so I traded them around but always made sure to keep one in the collection.
I still don’t have a Mantle but hope to before my days are done.
So what is that yoyo in our hobby? It doesn’t have to be the best playing throw, the prettiest, or the most expensive (although that normally comes with something like this).
I see all the threads about most wants etc… But most people’s top throws are ones that are available either in production or commonly on the BST. So I’m hoping I’m not wrong by thinking the Holy Grail yoyo would be one not so readily available.
