Yonamine is shown here wearing a uniform worn by the Yomiuri Giants during the 1951 and 1952 seasons, therefore we cannot tell whether it is a rookie card or a second year card. The card includes a facsimile autograph and is blank backed. In all our 32 years of buying, selling and auctioning Japanese baseball cards, this is the first example that we have seen. The American who changed Japanese baseball with his hard charging style of play, possibly resulting from his time as a running back with the San Francisco 49ers, has always been one of the most popular players with collectors.
