1934 Tour of Japan Silver Pass Presented to Earl Whitehill

1934 Tour of Japan Silver Pass Presented to Earl Whitehill

American baseball players began touring Japan for exhibition games as early as 1908. But in November of 1934, a virtual all-star team of American League standouts - headed by Babe Ruth - embarked on a whirlwind, 12-city, 18-game tour of the country. Washington Senators pitcher Earl Whitehill was one of the All-Americans, and this was his pass for the tour. Measuring 2.5x4" with "J.E Caldwell & Co." stamped on back, the front features the engraving: "Earl Whitehill, All American Baseball Team, 1934, Japan." There is a red, white and blue All American baseball shield as well. Some minor surface wear is evident but it hardly diminishes such a terrific, uncommon item.
