This card is seen with lesser frequency than most of the others in the JBR 76 set which causes us to wonder whether it was a short print. While the set is listed in the Japanese Baseball Card Checklist & Price Guide, 2nd Vintage Edition as having a scarcity factor of R3--between 10 and 100 copies known of most cards, we have personally seen only four examples of this card during the past 30 years. This example has a hole punched through it, which is not normally seen on JBR 76 cards, leading us to believe that the hole was created by a previous owner of the card, rather than the manufacturer. Blank backed.

Size: 1 5/8" x 2 1/2"

Condition: Would be Good, except for a hole punched in the card. Some staining or ink marks on the blank back.
