We are not sure of the exact year that this ribbon was issued, but we do know that it was produced for a reporter to wear while attending the Nippon Series games for that year. "Reporter" is printed on the ribbon in Japanese text, but the text is quite faded. A metal "Nippon World Series" infield representation is attached to the top near the pin. At bottom, a baseball is printed onto the ribbon which also states, "Nippon World Series". This is another "first time seen" item.
Size: 1 1/8" x 5"
Condition: Would be Ex to Ex/Mt, except that the word, "Reporter" in Japanese, which appears on the ribbon, is now faded.
