We know by reading the English text handwritten on stickers affixed to the reverse side of this photo that it was considered for use in some publication. However, we do not know whether it was actually selected, nor do we know the name of the publication that was considering it for inclusion. We do know that the Japanese text stamped on the back originates from the Yomiuri News Photo Center. In any case, this is a large, vintage professionally taken photo of Sadaharu Oh at the plate in his world famous flamingo batting stance. One could not ask for a more perfect representation of the greatest slugger of all time.
