This medal was a redemption premium for collectors of Kobai Caramel baseball cards. As stated on the back in Japanese text, it commemorates the Giants' three consecutive Japan Series Championships from 1951 to 1953. The baseball motif on the back includes the Kobai name and the interlocking TG Giants logo used in 1953. The original ribbon is attached to the medal, which is still in the original packaging, including a wood box with "Commemorative Kobai" printed on the box top. We are almost certain that the player depicted on the medal is all time Giants great, Tetsuharu Kawakami (HOF).

Size: The medal is 1 1/2" in diameter.

Condition: Medal and packaging are Nm.
