The Japanese Baseball Card Checklist & Price Guide, Vintage Edition 2.1 states that the JBR 48 set has a scarcity factor of R5, indicating that five or fewer copies of each card are known to exist. The JBR 48 set was issued to commemorate the 1934 U.S. All-Star Tour of Japan, featuring Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Both American and Japanese participants are featured in the set. A catcher with the Philadelphia A's when JBR 48 was issued, Berry was originally a college and pro football star. He was named to the Walter Camp All America Team in 1924 while an end at Lafayette University. He then joined the Pottsville Maroons of the fledgling National Football League, leading the circuit in points scored during the 1925 season. Following a 12 season Major League Baseball career, Berry ultimately became an American League umpire (1942-1962). Blank backed.
