    Description

    1931 Tour of Japan Team Signed Baseball. Considerably more scarce than its younger brother of 1934 vintage, the presented model recalls that first Depression-era trip across the Pacific. Adorning a "Mizuno Official University League" sphere such as those used in competition are eighteen autographs from the American Tourists, notably Gehrig, Simmons, Kelly, Cochrane, Maranville, Grove, Frisch and Muddy Ruel. The autographs range from 2/10 to 6/10 in strength, with all listed names readily legible. A degree of surface wear is to be expected from eight decades of existence, and the considerable rarity should discourage nitpicking. A thoroughly relevant artifact from the burgeoning international expansion of our National Pastime. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
