    Description

    1922 Baseball Tour of Japan Photographic Archive from the Casey Stengel Collection. More than 200 snapshots offer the first look for many of us at this early tour of Japan, here seen through the eyes of the great Casey Stengel. Rather evenly mixed between typical tourist snapshots of scenery and pictures of such stars as Waite Hoyt and George "Highpockets" Kelly both in and out of uniform, the collection also includes several Japanese issued postcards of the players in suited up for battle that are worth the cost of admission alone. In many cases, the players pictured are identified in an unknown hand on verso. Condition is terrific overall, as the photos have passed the decades packaged in a fat stack, leaving little chance of creasing or tearing. Any description in text of this lot is guaranteed to fail in conveying the volume and appeal contained within, so we would hope that those capable of attending lot viewing will explore this archive in person.
