In the past year or so, I have been very enamored with these bolts of indigo yukata material with photo cards attached to them from the 1960s. Athletes, actors, singers, kabuki stars....they all adorned brilliant blue/indigo yukata and promoted many different styles from many different companies. Right now I have a close to 30 of these bolts in my collection and there is something soothing and mystic about the patterns. This particular bolt and card are made by the Tokyo Yukata Company (東京ゆかた) and feature a card of the Dai-Yokozuna Taiho attached to a neat "shell" patterned bolt. The card has the number "110" on it. I also own #103 and #113 with different wrestlers so it appears that this was a run of sumo cards in a larger group of bolts. Would be neat to know if Tokyo Yukata made hundreds of other bolts....I'm always on the lookout.
Folded up, these bolts measure about 13" long, 6" wide and about 1.5" thick.
Please stay safe out there with this ever rapidly-changing health environment! Sayonara!
