Collectible Banzuke - 2008 - 2017

Regular price $18.00 Sale

Imported from Japan.  These are the Banzuke (roster and ranking of wrestlers) from various Grand Sumo Tournaments held in Japan over the years.

What a great way to celebrate a memorable tournament with an authentic banzuke from a past year's tournament.  Or grab a piece of history for a significant moment from one of your favorite wrestler's career (promotion, yusho, special prize, kinboshi, an upset, or retirement).

All of these Banzuke are folded and previously owned.  Some have been displayed, some opened only a few times, and some never opened.  Older banzuke may have started to yellow.  There may be edge marks from displaying or handling.  The Banzuke's year and month is included on the printed side in Japanese but an Arabic numeral year and month may be listed in light pencil on the reverse for easy identification.   

Most of these Banzuke were folded by the various sumo stables and mailed out to their supporters.  Often the stable will stamp the stable's name or sometimes a popular wrestler's name on the banzuke before sending out to their supporters.  Such stamps may be present on these banzuke.  However, since there are so many different wrestlers and stables we are not able to identify each specific stamp.  

More Recent Collectible Banzuke will be added as we obtain them.  Check back often.

Conditions of these Banzuke are very good with the inclusion of fold lines.   These will need to be flattened out.  Since they have been previously owned or have been folded for many years the folds may take some time to minimize.

Banzuke dimensions: 17 1/4" w  x  22 3/4" h
