An extraordinary box with great graphics for a professional grade of baseballs, this display box is in English, circa 1934, when Connie Mack's historic "Tour of Japan" starring Babe Ruth was causing baseball mania in Japan. Reads "Nagata Official Lion Match Ball University League. Guaranteed to Last Full Game Without Ripping or Losing Shape," and "Cow Hide 5oz 9in Cork Center." The box has wear and is missing some of the blue paper at the top but is still good looking and quite sturdy. This is the only one known, measures 12x9.25x3.25".
