Luckily, unopened packs of JCM 5 cards are open at the top and bottom. Thus, we were able to peek a bit. We slid two of the three cards down slightly before putting them back in place and determined that one of them is a Victor Starffin (HOF) (Russia) card. The other depicts Hall of Fame pitcher Atsushi Aramaki, and is a rookie card. We were unable to see the third card, as it appears to be slightly stuck to the wrapper. We would assume that the Starffin and Aramaki cards are in very high grade, since they have been preserved in the pack for 70 years. How many people have 70-year-old Japanese packs with Hall of Famer and rookie cards inside?

Size: 1 3/8" x 2 3/4"

Condition: The pack is Nm/Mt. The Starffin and Aramaki cards inside are expected to be in high grade. The third card is unknown and appears to be slightly stuck to the wrapper.
