In our 34 years in buying, selling and auctioning Japanese baseball cards and memorabilia, this is only the fourth time we have handled this particular 1955 New York Yankees Tour of Japan publication. In fact, it is the first time since 2011. It is the least often seen of the 1955 New York Yankees Tour of Japan Magazines. "New York Yankees" is printed vertically in Japanese along the right border of the cover. "Japan-U.S. Friendship Baseball" is printed at the top above the Yankees logo. However, the crowning glory of this publication is the gorgeous, colorful full body image of Mickey Mantle swinging. Inside the magazine are photo bios of each Yankee player, along with a number of other Yankee player photos. Japanese text.

Size: 7 1/4" x 10 1/8", 24 pages.

Condition: Vg/Ex with binding in great shape.
