The 2014 World YoYo Contest is almost here, and the local promotion for the event is in full swing! For the first time in the contest’s modern history, there is a tremendous amount of local promotion happening in order to bring non-players in to witness the event. The contest venue, the Archa Theatre, is in the heart of Prague and easily accessible by the general public. With a standing capacity of 1200 and plenty of amenities, the venue lends itself well to a non-player crowd. To help spread modern yoyoing and give the top players in the world a packed audience for their performances, the contest organizers have placed some huge and amazing posters all around the city! These posters are going to be the ultimate collectible if you can score one after the event. Congrats to Korda and the rest of the organizers…this year’s contest really does look like it’s going to be the biggest and best modern World YoYo Contest, and it’s setting the bar high for next years event in Japan!
This original lithograph Duncan YoYo poster from the 1930s was designed by French artist Raymond Gid and is being auctioned next month by Poster Connection with a starting bid of $6,400.
It’s a beautiful illustration, and listed in “A-” condition, which is pretty incredible for something that is 80 years old.
This is sure to be the gem of any yoyo collection, although it may be out of the price range of most collectors. Full details below…good luck!
