    Classic Wham-O A nice piece to have in a collection but not too much in $.
    They are more History than good. Display it and shoot something else. It looks to be in good shape. Most are pretty rough and the logo is faded and worn.

    Definitely a cool old flip! I'm pretty sure there were millions of those Wham-Os made, so they will never be "rare".

    I'd have to shoot it, just to add to the history of it but I'd probably find a fun way to display it. Cool gift!!

    Came out in the 60’s, cool little piece of slingshot history to display. I think simpleshot or someone was making hdpe reproductions of them for a little while. I was able to grab this one still in the box on eBay awhile back pretty cheap.

    Well, that box may be worth more than the sling!
    Sadly, my grandmother's Princess vacuum with the conical filters, de-mothing, and other odd attachments, got water-damaged and rusted out in my shop. Had a cool cardboard suitcase and all; I shoulda sold it!
