In 1967, the Meiji Dairies Corporation added a cultured milk product named Meiji Paigen C to their already popular Meiji Gold Milk product line. To promote this new addition, the Dainippon Playing Card Co. produced two different playing card decks, with Sadaharu Oh pictured on the back of each card. One deck, which we have offered several times in the past, contains an image of Sadaharu Oh standing while leaning on a bat, on a solid blue background. This second card deck, offered here, depicts Oh in his famous flamingo batting stance on a solid green background. The deck comes with a joker card, "contract bridge" card printed in English, and the original plastic case. The cards in this deck are in spectacular Nm/Mt and Mint condition!

Size: Each card is 2 1/4" x 3 3/8".

Condition: Every card is Nm/Mt or Mint. The plastic case contains some surface scratching.
