This is a truly rare item. The only other example of this postcard that we have handled in the past was sold in our 2007 Mini Auction #11 for $2,124. The lucky holder of this postcard was entitled to receive a ticket to the Brooklyn Dodgers vs. All Japan game played November 3rd at Koshien Stadium. Furthermore, if your lucky number was called, you would also receive a signed baseball of a Dodgers player. The lucky number 0531 is located near bottom right. The round stamp on the back indicates this card was indeed redeemed for a ticket. The Dodgers beat the Japanese All-Star team that day by a score of 14-7, thanks to a seven run eighth inning.

Size: 3 7/16" x 5 11/16"

Condition: SGC 2--Good due to the redemption stamp on the back.
