In 1953, Wally Yonamine was only in the third year of his stellar career as a player, scout, coach and manager in Japan. During his 12 year career as an active player, he would win three Central League batting championships, an MVP
award, was named to seven consecutive Best 9 teams, and was an 11 time All Star. No wonder, he was elected to the Japan Baseball Hall of Fame! The JF 18 card of Yonamine features a striking head and shoulders portrait that
captures the essence of the man.
