The scarce and attractive high grade tall boy type cards offered here contain some of the best images ever produced of these players. The most legendary among this group is Tadashi Sugiura (top row, left), a right handed pitcher who won 116 games during his first four seasons (1958-1961). This second year portrait of the 1958 Central League Rookie of the Year (beating out Nagashima) was taken at the start of his incredible 1959 season, when he went 38-4, 1.41 with 336 Ks! Kazuhiro Yamauchi, a right handed hitting outfielder who was named to 10 Best 9 teams is pictured at top row right. The bottom row (left to right) consists of Kenjiro Tamiya, a pitcher turned outfielder who was selected to seven all star teams and Kihachi Enomoto, a left handed batting first baseman who was selected to 12 all star teams and nine Best 9 teams.  

Size: Each card is 2 1/4" x 5".

Condition: All cards are Nm or better.
