I don't know about who buys them but girls and boys clubs, etc world wide will taken them FREE and then reuse them, get the names, off, etc
This is always a high need. Check with your local community education through school.

Local schools may use them as well. Our school reuses trophies for our curling bonspiels.

I don't know of any place where you could sell them, except perhaps at a yard sale. (Where people buy them for a quarter each, and then donate them to clubs or schools!)

I was the winner of the California State Duncan Yo Yo Championship in 1971. One of the items I was awarded for winning was this trophy.

I am going to sell it. Does anyone know of buyers or collectors of this type of item that would like to purchase it from me?

Thank you.

I just check this site yoyo.collectionhero.com/.../gallery_listings.php?keyword=1971... and I have found out that a 2nd runner up trophy6 for the same championship tournament you were in was sold on eBay on Sept 2019 for $249. There is a market for this and people do love to collect YoYo trophies and other stuff from this time. You can try listing this one eBay and see if anyone is interested. You may be able to list this on a few other sites who specialize in these kinds of items. Check out the link I have given you and you can find out where they would suggest you to list this to get the best exposure.

There is still a lot of interest in everything about the Yo Yo world but it may be difficult right now to generate enough interest to pay you what your trophy may be worth in better times.

I did find a lot of sites that sell the Yo Yo paraphernalia but not any that seem to be set up for individuals to sell their pieces. I'm sure some of these might buy your trophy but not for very much money.
The selling sites like Facebook Marketplace, LetGo, Offerup, even Craigslist (nationwide) could be places to try.
eBay and Amazon have the most traffic but if you list on either of these sites (especially eBay) you should not list it at the same time on other sites (against their 'rules').

Since this is a unique item you would just have to place a price that you feel you would sell it for. Do not set a smaller price with an auction on eBay hoping to get more money because that does not always happen and you have to sell for whatever is the ending bid.

Set your price and keep it listed for several months before reducing as this will not be easy to sell (usually - but auctions can be weird and the right person may see it the first week).

Is this your posting?

Sometimes there are sports shops in a local area that will let you display things like this (for sale) so maybe you might check out any in your area.

You should be able to donate those trophies to organizations that hold those sorts of activities. Take off the engraved plaques, and pass them along for re-use. However, I don't think you should expect to get paid for these. The world is full of old trophies. You may also find that you can donate them to local children's clubs or organizations; they can switch out the tops and use the trophies for other activities and sports.

I am not sure there is much of a market for these except, perhaps, at a yard sale. You can give them to goodwill or the Salvation Army, as they sell them in Thrift Shops (for next to nothing). Sometimes schools and clubs take them, change out the tops, and give them for activities in their organizations. You might be better off to try to give them to Scouts, a local elementary school, playground associations, or something like that.

It would need special 'provenance' to be worth much. Can you find the original sponsor of the trophy to see if they still exist or have any records? Otherwise find a club matching the trophy; sports club, horse clubs, sewing clubs.
