Produced by the Marusan Company, who manufactured many menko and bromide card sets during the 1940s, 50s and 60s, these sheets contain what we assume are heat transfers. All images are reverse images and are wildly colorized versions of black and white photos. 20 players are found on the three sheets, including 12 Japan Hall of Fame members--(left sheet, left column, top to bottom) Kazuto Tsuruoka (HOF), Nobuo Nakatani, Nobuaki Miyashita (left sheet, right column, top to bottom) Shigeaki Kuroo, Henry "Bozo" Wakabayashi (HOF) (Hawaii), Seizo Furukawa, Rentaro Imanishi (middle sheet, left column, top to bottom) Shosei Go (HOF) (Taiwan), Hiroshi Oshita (HOF), Jiro Noguchi (HOF) (middle sheet, right column, top to bottom) Juzo Sanada (HOF), Shigeru Chiba (HOF), Takehiko Bessho (HOF), Makoto Kozuru (HOF) (right sheet, left column, top to bottom) Giichiro Shiraki, Hiroshi Nakao (HOF), Victor Starffin (HOF) (Russia) (right sheet, right column, top to bottom) Takeshi Doigaki, Michio Nishizawa (HOF), Kozo Matsuo.

Size: Each transfer sheet is 2 3/4" x 6 3/4". Average player size is 1 1/4" x 2 1/4". .

Condition: Each sheet has minor chips at the corners. The left sheet has some staining at the top. The left and right sheets exhibit some creasing. Most individual transfers do not have any of these defects.
