Over three days in 1934 (June 2-4) two top Yokohama high school baseball teams squared off six times at Yokohama Peace Stadium. Later that year, the same stadium hosted a game between the U.S. All Stars featuring Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig and the All Japan team. The poster offered here is an advertisement for the high school matches. This poster, while not holding the glamour of a U.S. Tour poster, is truly inspiring in its artistry.

Size: 21 1/4" x 30"

Condition: A small crease at top center, very minor staining in spots, a few pinholes near the top. Overall Vg.
