Ultra-light figural catcher, measuring approximately 5 1/2" but weighing virtually nothing.  Manufactured in Japan, the figure features full catcher's gear, with both arms attached by thin string so they swing back and forth.  The legs, however, are stationery, enabling the figure to stand.  Strong appearance, though we assume there is some fading to the orange/red chest protector, mask, shin guards and mitt.  The catcher's rear end is somewhat dented, and some light surface dirt is visible throughout.
