Rare Sighting

I was doing some looking around on Yahoo! Japan Auctions the other day and I came across something I've never seen before - an empty bag for Calbee's Yakyu chips from 1973, the first year Calbee did baseball cards.

I swiped the images from the auction to share here.  As you can see, the bag's not in very good shape which isn't a surprise since it's almost 42 years old.

Wow, that is an interesting find. Only 1000 yen starting bid, I`d be tempted to bid on it but the seller doesn`t accept postal transfers.

I`ve never seen one of those and had been kind of curious about what the bags of chips in the 1970s looked like.
