This is a Type 1 card since it contains the Marukami logo on the back. Type 2 cards do not have this logo. A very young Sadaharu Oh is standing behind second year Giants pitcher Toshihiro Komatsu. While Oh became baseball's greatest slugger, Komatsu faded quickly, leaving Japan Pro Baseball after winning only one game in his career. This high grade card was originally half of an uncut pair on a display sheet. This explains the minor display sheet paper remnant on the back, and the slightly bowed and hand cut left border. The borders on all sides are beautiful and wide as issued. Overall, it is an extraordinarily attractive Sadaharu Oh rookie card.
Size: 1 13/16" x 3"
Condition: Nm with trace of display sheet paper remnant on the reverse and hand cut left border.
