The Japanese Baseball Card Checklist & Price Guide, Vintage Edition 2.1 states that the JBR 48 set has a scarcity factor of R5, indicating that five or fewer copies of each card are known to exist. The JBR 48 set was issued to commemorate the 1934 U.S. All-Star Tour of Japan, featuring Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Both American and Japanese participants are featured in the set. Makino was a shortstop at Keio University who later participated in the 1934 U.S. All-Star Japan Tour. Like many other Tokyo Big Six University stars of the era, Makino chose not to enter Japan Pro Baseball. As a manager, he led the All-Kanebo team to three consecutive Intercity Baseball Tournament championships (1950-1952). From 1981 to 2002, Makino was the president of the National High School Baseball Federation. He lived to be 95 years old, passing away in 2006. Blank backed.
