Batter and Catcher set: Both pieces are marked "Made in Occupied Japan" on the underside. The batter shows minor age-appropriate crazing and the catcher's head and adjacent left hand are cleanly broken off but readily repairable and when situated on the body this break is fairly unobtrusive. Both pieces have cork stoppers;

The figure with the green cap has a very small chip on the belt buckle, this set is without stoppers;

3.) Baseball and Catcher's Mitt set that is unmarked: Both pieces are very handsome and show minor crazing that provides a period authentic look. This set is without stoppers;

4.) Angry Batter and Umpire set: Batter has "Japan" sticker on the underside and the umpire has a "Made in Japan" sticker. Both pieces are fantastic with bold paint and wet-look gloss and both have cork stoppers. Minor crazing is also noted;
