This small magazine is a series of one page photo bios with statistics for each player on both the U.S. All Star and N.Y. Giants squads executed in a Who's Who in Baseball format. There are also individual captioned photos of the All Japan team. Players include Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Nellie Fox, Warren Spahn, Robin Roberts, Ed Mathews, Bob Lemon, Red Schoendienst, Pee Wee Reese, Enos Slaughter, Leo Durocher, Hoyt Wilhelm and Monte Irvin. Mantle and Spahn eventually declined their invitations to participate and did not actually make the trip. Japanese text except for US player names.

Size: 5" x 7". 34 pages.

Condition: Would be Nm or better, except that two of the Japanese team photo pages have the names of a few added players written in lightly by the original owner.
