For this sticker, the original character, “Trumpet Boya,” was created, modeled on Mr. Masatoshi Sakata, the first leader of the supporters’ club of the Hiroshima Toyo Carp who proudly played the trumpet in the baseball stadium and who is the initiator of the trumpet team supporting the Hiroshima Toyo Carp. This sticker is made in the motif of a fan cheering for the baseball team in a stadium and baseball players.
