Only two copies of this card are known to exist in the hobby. Shotaro Ogawa was the greatest pitcher of his generation. After leading his team to eight consecutive appearances in the National High School Baseball Championships at Koshien, he starred at Waseda U. from 1929 to 1932, bewildering opponents with his fastball and "drop ball". After college, he continued his association with amateur baseball, shunning the "corrupt" idea of playing professionally He was elected to the Japan Hall of Fame in 1981.
