This is the only example of this object that we have encountered. It is truly a unique baseball collectible. Faces and facsimile autographs of six Hall of Famers can be seen. A different image and corresponding signature appears depending on the position of the dial, which is in the form of a baseball. Printing on the bats indicates that this was a furoku (appendix) from the July issue of Yakyu Shonen magazine. The players depicted are Tetsuharu Kawakami, Hiroshi Oshita, Makoto Kozuru, Michio Nishizawa, Fumio Fujimura and Hideo Fujimoto.  All are Japan Hall of Fame members.

The bats are held together by a small piece of cloth that is most likely not original to the item.
