This set was included in the April 1962 edition of Shonen Book magazine. These thickish cards were originally part of a perforated sheet. White bordered fronts have a color player close-up drawing (except for Toyoda, which is a swinging pose). Ten Hall of Famers and one Golden Player are featured in the set: Sadaharu Oh, Shigeo Nagashima, Masaichi Kaneda, Isao Harimoto, Minoru Murayama, Katsuya Nomura, Kazuhiro Yamauchi, Yasumitsu Toyoda, Kazuhisa Inao, Tadashi Sugiura and Isao Shibata (rookie). There is also a rookie card of Yukio Ozaki. One of the cards is an instruction card that states that this set of pro baseball all-star cards was part of the April issue of Shonen Book.

Size: Each card is approximately 1 1/4" x 2 1/2".

Condition: Cards are Nm to Nm/Mt with a number of cards having various degrees of off-centering, which is endemic to all cards in this issue.
