There were three series of Tachibana Seika cards printed in 1959 with a playing card on the front. The series can be distinguished from one another by the text on the back. One series (Type 1) has a space between the bottom two lines of text. Type 2 cards have a space between the third and second lines from the bottom. Type 3 has no spaces between lines of text near the bottom. The cards could be used to redeem prizes just like the normal Tachibana Seika player cards. All cards in this lot are Type 2 cards, except for the Central League card (upper right) which is a Type 3. These tough-to-find cards are found on most Tachibana Seika collectors' want lists.

Size: Each card is approximately 1 19/32” x 2 9/32”.

Condition: Range: Good to Nm. Average: Ex to Ex/Mt
