1955 Photograph of Casey Stengel and Del Webb from the New York Yankees as they arrive in Osaka, Japan for a goodwill tour. An interesting image as this took place exactly ten years from the end of WWII. In some ways it is hard to imagine many of these players, who were veterans, would be ok with this tour, but it was an important part of healing for both sides. Likely unique, the photo comes with a cool newspaper article that shows this exact event from another angle. Condition and quality are both outstanding and this is being offered here for the first time ever.
