The Japanese Baseball Card Checklist & Price Guide Vintage Edition 2.1 has assigned this set a scarcity factor of R5, meaning that five or fewer examples of this card are known in the hobby. Another example of this card was included in our Auction #51 (February 2017). That example was not professionally graded, and appears to have been in lower grade than this card. We feel that the card offered here is the nicest we have seen. Grove's performance on the Tour was by far the most outstanding by any pitcher, as he pitched 38 innings, posting a 0.00 ERA! He also fanned 55 Japanese batters. Blank backed.

Size: Approximately 3 3/8" x 5 3/8"

Condition: PSA 4 (Vg/Ex)
