This image was undoubtedly taken during the 1971 Baltimore Orioles post season Tour of Japan. The Orioles had a won-loss record of 12-2-4 on the Tour. Boog Powell hit .398 with 6 homers during the Tour. At the age of nearly 36 years, Nagashima's career was beginning to wind down. He batted only .250 with 2 homers during the Tour. In his three post-Tour seasons with the Yomiuri Giants, Nagashima endured his poorest three seasons, never batting more than .269, before retiring at the end of the 1974 season. However, the 1975 JMC 1 set was produced to honor Nagashima, who may be the most popular Japanese player ever, and is certainly the most beloved.
