Until two months ago, we had never seen this item before! We assume that this plastic badge was produced by the Teijin Company, a giant Japanese corporation, founded 100 years ago as a textile manufacturer. Over the years, the company has branched out into plastics, the pharmaceutical industry, IT and a number of other areas. We have no idea why the company produced these plastic badges of Sadaharu Oh and Shigeo Nagashima. Depending on which way the badge is turned, an image of either Oh or Nagashima can be seen. In any case, it's a cool little item.
