Lefty was instrumental in organizing and popularizing Japanese baseball and quite a few cards of him were issued by Japanese makers. Unfortunately, nearly all cards of him are rather crude drawings that you would be hard-pressed to know are him. This card, however, is a silver bromide photographic image issued in conjunction with the Seals' 1949 tour of Japan. The tour was very significant in Japan as it marked one of the very first postwar cultural exchanges between the nations.
