While the JCM 126a cards have the identical design to 1951 JCM 126, the JCM 126a cards are much larger. Only two cards (O’Doul and Berra) are known to exist in this set, and it appears that the cards may have originally been issued as an uncut pair. In any case, the card has received an R5 designation in the Japanese Baseball Card Checklist & Price Guide, Vintage Edition 2.1, indicating that five or fewer copies are known of each card. O’Doul’s surname in Japanese is printed along the bottom of both the front and back of the card.

Size: 2 11/16” x 4 7/8”

Condition: Would be Vg/Ex but a small portion at lower left seems to be trimmed.
