The paddle is constructed of wood and paper. It is sturdier and of much higher quality than most other vintage paddle fans of the era.

Fumio Fujimura, affectionately known as "Mr. Tigers", was the heart and soul of the Osaka team from 1936 to 1958. A third baseman, his lifetime batting average was exactly .300.

Size: Paddle portion--4 7/8" x 5 3/4". Vertical length--13".

Condition: Much of the paper surface has peeled off from the wooden structure. However, most of the image remains intact.
