Homma’s Baseball Cards

DATE
Year: 1910
Decade: 1910s
Century: 19th (1801-1900)

A pack of Homma’s Base Ball Cards from the Homma Brothers and Co., Tokyo, with playing board and directions included.

Scholar Andrew Gebert commented, “Together with your 1940s baseball memorabilia, this tracks a trajectory in Japanese popular culture: from a full embrace of English and things foreign in 1910, to their erasure and suppression in the wartime years.”
