This card is part of a set which includes 7 to 10 sequential batting motion cards of Sadaharu Oh (actual number unknown). The set is incredibly rare, as several of these Oh batting cards have not yet been discovered! Rob Fitts' very complete Sadaharu Oh Baseball Card Checklist shows only two cards from this set (numbers 1 and 2). This card is #3 in the series. It is one of only two examples known of this card!!! Not surprisingly, this set carries the R5 scarcity factor in the Japanese Baseball Card Checklist & Price Guide, Vintage Edition 2.1. While this card is not in the best condition, it is in better shape than the other known example. Furthermore, no medium grade or high grade example of any JCM 135 Oh card has ever been discovered. This card would be at home in the best and most discriminating Oh collections. If you are looking for one of the ultimate Sadaharu Oh rare rookie cards (50 to 100 times scarcer than a T-206 Wagner), please look no further.

Size: 1 13/16" x 3"

Condition: Rounded corners. Creasing at top and bottom. Remnants of pencil or pen scribbling on the back. Overall, Fair to Poor.
