Description: Koshien Stadium panoramic postcard - famed "Tour of Japan" venue with Japan/America scores recorded on back c.1934.

An additional pencil notation was added later and may be a rough translation of Japanese language text imprinted on the front. The piece remains in fine overall condition with just a hint of light wear: EX
