JBR 13 is one of a number of late 1949 issues that features cards from the San Francisco Seals Tour of Japan. This tour was one of the first peacetime goodwill exchanges between Japan and the U.S., and as a result, the tour was highly anticipated. This uncut sheet of sepiatone cards, produced by Yakyu Shonen magazine as an insert, features all of the Seals players from the complete 48 card set--(top row, left to right) Leroy Jarvis, Al Lien, Con Dempsey, Cliff Melton (2nd row, left to right) Roy Nicely, Jimmy Moran, Frank Shofner, Gene Brocker, (bottom row, left to right) Dick Lajeski, Reno Cheso, Jack Tobin and Dario Lodigliani.

Size: Each card if cut from the sheet would be 1 11/16" x 2 1/2". The uncut sheet is 7 1/8" x 7 1/2".

Condition: The sheet is in Near Mint. Most cards would be Nm//Mt or Mint if cut from the sheet.
