This is the first time we have ever had the pleasure of offering the JCM 31e Oh/Komatsu card. It is one of the scarcer Sadaharu Oh rookie cards. Black and white "tobacco menko" cards are seen far less frequently than the color variety. This may be the nicest example that we have seen. It began life as half of an uncut pair attached to a display sheet. This explains the minor display sheet paper remnant on the reverse, and the hand cut, slightly wavy left border. The borders are creamy and wide as issued. In all, this is an impressive, high grade 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.
