Following a highly successful first Tour in 1929, the University of Michigan baseball team returned to Japan in August 1932 to play 14 games against various Japanese university teams. Michigan, under coach Ray Fisher, won 10 of the 14 contests. Fisher coached the Wolverines from 1921 to 1958 after receiving a lifetime ban from major league baseball. A pitcher with the Giants and Reds, Fisher had a 100-84, 2.92 record over 11 MLB seasons. The upper left ticket is for the game against Keio U. on September 10th, won by Keio 2-1. The upper right ticket is for a game against Hosei U., played on September 8th, in which Michigan won 7-1, battering future Japan Hall of Fame pitcher, Bozo Wakabayashi, a Hawaii native. At lower left is a ticket to the first game of the Tour on August 27th against Sundai U., which Michigan won 5-3. At lower right is a ticket for the game on August 30th, in which Meiji U. prevailed over Michigan 6-2. All four tickets are used, as they contain typical punch holes of the era.

Size: Each ticket is 2 3/8" x 3 1/2".
