This is the first time we have ever encountered an example of this particular Nagashima tile puzzle. The 15 piece children's toy features a gorgeous portrait of Japan's Mr. Baseball, Shigeo Nagashima.. The puzzle is unused, and is still attached to the original packaging. Apparently, according to the packaging, there are two Nagashima puzzles, the "A" and "B" versions. We know this because the letter "A" is printed at upper right in red text. In the past, we have seen only the "B" version, which is an action image of Nagashima. The puzzle is called "Baseball Player Puzzle". "Made in Japan" is printed along the bottom edge. This product was licensed by the Yomiuri Giants.

Size: The package is 3 1/4" x 7 1/4". The game is 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".

Condition: The puzzle is unused. The packaging exhibits some staining along the upper left edge, and a bit of corner dinging and creasing in spots.
