Cards from the JBR 109 set are rarely seen. In fact, this is only the second example of this Hiroshi Oshita card that we have ever encountered. The unusual design coupled with extreme rarity makes this an especially desirable second year card of Oshita. The card is slightly oversized because it has extra large right and bottom borders. A left handed hitting outfielder, Oshita, a native of Taiwan, was known for his blue bat and his sordid off-the-field behavior. Oshita, a graduate of Meiji University and a trained kamikaze pilot, was selected to seven Best 9 teams and won three batting titles and an MVP award.
