1931 U.S. Baseball Tour of Japan Posters w/Lou Gehrig (2)

1931 U.S. Baseball Tour of Japan Posters w/Lou Gehrig (2)

From the first of the great United States Tours: 1. "Japan versus U.S. Baseball Match" display poster is rice paper slightly mended with conservation tape. The game was played in Matsumato City, and the U.S. team won 15-0. 7.5x21.5". 2. Fascinating roster sheet is written in both Japanese and English. It lists 7 Hall of Fame players for the U.S. team: Lou Gehrig, Rabbit Maranville, Lefty Grove, Al Simmons, Frankie Frisch, Mickey Cochrane and George Kelly. Interestingly, the American players are listed by their given names, so Lou Gehrig becomes Henry, Rabbit Maranville becomes Walter, Lefty Grove becomes Robert, and Mickey Cochrane becomes Gordon. 7.5x10". First we have seen of both.
