Just in time for baseball, here is a game you can play without leaving your living room—or even you couch. First, it's a yo-yo. (You'll have to stand up to play. Sorry.) Second, it's a baseball game: one or two players. And invented years before those video games we all know about. Heck, you can even play a baseball game and watch a baseball game at the same time.
This was made by the Union Wadding Company for Festival in the 1970s. According to the back of the card, you could purchase a yo-yo that was TOE-TAC-TIC (sic), GOLF, PIN BALL, and BASEBALL.
If you want to keep this yo-yo in its package you can still play baseball with it. We got to first base and ran out of patience.
The yo-yo is mint, the card does have some creases and yellowing from age. There is also wear on the blister pack from rubbing against other items.
Original 1970s price was a dollar. Baseball players get a little more than that today.
Um, play ball?
