Until now, we thought that there were only two different Sadaharu Oh rookie cards in the JCM 31e set. Now there are three known. The image is the same as that of the JCM 32c rookie card offered elsewhere in this auction, only this version is in black & white. In general, black and white "tobacco menko" cards are seen far less frequently than the color variety. The card would be in relatively high grade except that it is way off center left to right on the front, and somewhat off center top to bottom on the reverse. If you are a Sadaharu Oh card collector and want a copy of each of his rookie cards, this example is a must!

Size: 1 13/16" x 3"

Condition: Ex/Mt to Nm but extremely o/c left to right on front, o/c top to bottom on back.
