According to the Japanese Baseball Card Checklist & Price Guide Vintage Edition by Gary Engel, the JRM 52 Bullseye Menko set has a scarcity factor of R4, signifying that ten or fewer examples of each card are known. Normally, the card of Victor Starffin has the menko number 400 printed inside a black clover on the front. This card has the number 200 printed inside the clover! As of now, this recently discovered variation is unique within the hobby. That makes this one of the rarest, if not the rarest card of 300 game winner Victor Starffin in existence. If you are a Starffin collector, your collection will not be complete without this interesting variation. Blank backed.

Size: 2 3/4" in diameter

Condition: Surface abrasions on the front. Paper loss at the edges on the front. Significantly off-center left to right. The blank back is in significantly better condition than the front. Overall fair to poor.
