I grew up around Trinity Ave (saint marys project). We played skellys 60’s and 70’s.. until dark starting from midday. My top was a yellow disk from the school board little wax (To much would make the top wiggle when you “hunch it”.)One word we would yell “Sweepstakes”BEFORE your top got sent for a long journey By the time you got back you the board we were already well into the game. Anyone ever split a spinning top and the reward was getting that color on yours.What fun brings back so many memories.
