Posted Jim Fitzgerald Flying Clipper, Footbag

vintageoctoeThis photo was sent to us to see if we knew anything about it. We do! Flying Clipper was established in 1983 and this footbag was made in our first year of production. It was made by Jim “Toes” Fitzgerald co-founder of Flying Clipper. Back then all of the footbags were hand prepped as well as hand sewn. Starting from a raw piece of cowhide leather we first dyed the colors and then the patterns were hand drawn on the leather and then we hand cut the pieces and lastly we hand punched all the holes. That was all before hand sewing it. This footbag sold for $10.00 retail. Thanks for the photo M G, it refreshes the memory banks! :=)
