Overall, these cards are in outstanding condition, with sharp borders, corners and images. There are a few centering issues common to the set, but this is to be expected. The roster of players included in the set is impressive. The most important player in this lot is Shigeo Nagashima (HOF). Nagashima's own card is at upper left. Nagashima can also be seen in the background of the Futoshi Nakanishi card (top row second from left).  Additionally, Nagashima appears in the card in the center of the top row featuring Masaichi Kaneda (HOF), Japan's greatest pitcher ever. Other HOFer cards in the set are (top row right) Motoshi Fujita w/ Katsuya Nomura (HOF). Second row, left to right: (HOFers) Tadashi Sugiura, Yasumitsu Toyoda, Yoshio Yoshida, Kazuhisa Inao w/Tatsuro Hirooka and Kazuhisa Inao. Hawaiian Andy Miyamoto is seen in the center of the third row. Win this lot, and you are a Sadaharu Oh card away from owning one of the best examples of this iconic Japanese set.

Size: Each card is 1 5/16" x 2 5/8".

Condition: Most cards Nm/Mt with several off-centered.
