This memento contains complete rosters for all nine teams that played Japan Pro Baseball during the Fall 1938 season. Names such as Victor Starffin and "Bucky" Harris McGalliard appear on the roster lists. Lineups and line scores for two games are filled out in pen, presumably the work of a previous owner.

One game between the Giants and Eagles features a Giants lineup including Victor Starffin (HOF) (Russia) on the mound, with Hall of Famers Tetsuharu Kawakami, Shigeru Mizuhara, Shigeru Chiba, Katsumi Shiraishi and Haruyasu Nakajima in the lineup. What a spectacular list of players! The Giants defeated an Eagles team 4-0 that featured "Bucky" Harris McGalliard behind the plate and Hawaiian Mamoru Sugitaya at third base. The other game was a clash between the Senators and Nagoya Kinko which the Senators won 5-0 with player manager and Hall of Famer Hisanori Karita in the lineup.

Size: 5 1/8" x 7". 4 pages.
