This 1942 movie starring Gary Cooper as the Iron Horse was not released in Japan until 1949. This is one of six different Pride of the Yankees lobby pamphlets we have offered in the past, and possibly the scarcest. This is only the second example of this pamphlet type that we have seen. The previous example had ink handwriting on the front, so was not as desirable as this one. Inside pages contain both Japanese text and photos. There are two photos featuring Babe Ruth (who had a small part in the movie) and three with the real Lou Gehrig. One photo is of Ruth, Gehrig and 1934 U.S. Major League All Star Tour of Japan organizer Sotaro Suzuki (HOF).

Size: 7 1/8" x 10". 16 pages.
