Theoretically, the LiLi Gum set consists of 18 cards. However, four of these eighteen cards have never been seen! It is surmised that they were printed in minute quantities to prevent customers from completing sets which could have been redeemed for expensive prizes. With the exception of the Sadaharu Oh and Shigeo Nagashima cards, all other actually seen cards from the set are here in this lot, including both variations of the Tadashi Sugiura card. These cards are: (top row, left to right) Minoru Murayama (HOF), Kihachi Enomoto (HOF), Kazuto Tsuruoka (HOF), Futoshi Nakanishi (HOF), (middle row, left to right) Yoshio Yoshida (HOF), Katsuya Nomura (HOF), Tadashi Sugiura (HOF), Tadashi Sugiura (HOF), (bottom row, left to right) Noburo Inoue, Shigeo Fujio, Kohei Sugiyama, Toru Mori and Katsumi Fujimoto. Overall, this is near set is in nice condition.

Size: Each card is 1 1/8" x 1 3/8".

Condition: Mostly Ex to Nm with occasional minor foxing or staining on a few cards.
