This never before seen card contains an image most likely taken at a 1949 East-West All Star Game. The players are all wearing 1949 uniforms, and all four players would have been on the same team for this game. Unlike American all star games, the players wore their regular uniforms with an "E" or "W" sown on the back, which blocked out the uniform number. The players featured on this card are all Japan Hall of Fame members. They are, from left to right: Noboru Aota, Victor Starffin, Tetsuharu Kawakami and Sadayoshi Fujimoto (manager). The orb that appears to be on the bill of Starffin's cap is part of the image, and not wear on the card. It may be a baseball, but we are not sure. Blank backed.
