Unfortunately, I don't have any information on the source of the numbered cards. But we are always making discoveries and learning new things in the world of Japanese cards. If I find out more about the numbered cards, I will post it

Given the similarities of these it looks to me like they were all produced at about the same time. That also makes sense because this tour was dwarfed by the 1934 tour so I would think there was probably a 2-3 year window for 1931 tour materials. Is that a fair conclusion?

Just noticed this in the current Heritage auction (not mine). Looks like the same as Brad's card, but as a signed photo.

Default 1931 Yuasa

I am preparing material for the National, and in going through my collection, I discovered an O'Doul card which is identical to the O'Doul in the 1931 Yuasa set, except that this card has a number 5 in the lower right corner. The most interesting part is that included with the card is the envelope in which it was mailed to the Japanese collector who ordered it.

According to the envelope, the card was mailed by G. T. Sun Co., High Speed Photography, located in Kyobashi-ku, Tokyo, Japan. Therefore, we might surmise that cards with the number on them may have been produced by G. T. Sun, and not Yuasa.

Wow, that is really cool Gary! Do you mind sharing a scan of the card and the envelope? Also, my #1 question: Is there a date on the envelope?

I'll try to do a scan later. But to answer your #1 question, there is no date on the envelope.
