The ticket pictured a the top is for the game of 10/27/49 in Nagoya between the Seals and the All Japan team. The Seals prevailed by the score of 13-4 with Bill Werle besting Hall of Famer Takehiko Bessho. The lower ticket was originally for the game of 10/28/49 at Korakuen Stadium between the Seals and All Stars. Unfortunately, that game was rained out. The only remaining game on the Tour played at Korakuen was on 10/30 against the Big Six University League All Stars, and we suppose that this ticket was used to view that final game of the Tour. It is presumed that the Seals took it easy on the college boys that day, as Lefty O'Doul was the starting pitcher for the Seals! He faced 1950 pro rookie and future Hall of Famer Junzo Sekine on the mound, who pitched the complete game for the All Stars, who were defeated 4-2.

Size: Each ticket is approximately 4 3/4" x 2".

Condition: Vg/Ex
