This is a super attractive horizontal format color bromide depicting the "God of Batting" crying out after taking one of his monumental cuts at the baseball. The blue-sky background enhances this giant sized portrait of the best hitter of the 1940s and 50s who subsequently became the best Japan Pro Baseball manager ever.

This example is in exceptionally high grade for a c. 1950 1st prize bromide.
