This is a seldom seen Jintan Gum card of Havana native Chico Barbon. As a 22-year-old, Barbon left his homeland to join the Hankyu Braves in 1955. He ultimately played 11 seasons in Japan. Rather than returning to Castro's Cuba after his playing career ended, Barbon remained in Japan, where even today, he is a prominent member of the Japanese baseball scene.
