It is beat to hell and has CG carved into the back. Much paint loss and scrapes. The foil sticker is also all beat up and a lot of it missing. Even so, this is a very collectible yo-yo, there are a lot of "Cheerio" Yo-Yo collectors out there. While this is not going t be a jewel in anyone's collection, it is a piece of Yo-Yo history. I can only imagine who CG is and what became of him (or her).
