Cards from this Kobai Caramel issue are noted for their four white borders with four red corners on the front, along with a player head and shoulders image in the center. The two Japanese characters of Kobai are printed in the bottom two corners. Backs are printed in blue ink on a white background and contain redemption information in a format that is quite similar but not identical to the other 1953 issues. Japan's best hitter of the 1940s and 1950s and also Japan Pro Baseball's greatest manager of all time, makes an appearance here in this scarce set.

Size: 1 5/8" x 2 1/4"
