If you are a Japanese Koshien High School Baseball fan, this is a great collector's item for those who cheer on the Kanto region in Japan.
In Japan, Kōshien generally refers to the two annual baseball tournaments played by high schools nationwide, culminating in a showdown at Hanshin Kōshien Stadium in Nishinomiya, Japan.
These nationwide tournaments enjoy widespread popularity similar to that of NCAA March Madness in the United States, arguably equal to or greater than professional baseball. Qualifying tournaments are televised locally, and each final stage game at Kōshien is televised nationally on NHK.
The tournaments have become national traditions, and many frantic students and parents travel from their hometowns to cheer for their local team. It is common to see players walking off the field in tears after being eliminated from the tournament by a loss. The star players of the championship team will achieve a degree of celebrity status.
For players, playing at Kōshien becomes a gateway to playing at the professional level. Due to the recruiting practices of Japanese high schools, top prospects often play on solid teams that we're able to reach the final tournament at Kōshien
