After buying, selling and auctioning Japanese baseball cards and memorabilia for 32 years, we finally have our first Futoshi Nakanishi (HOF) shikishi to present for auction. During the 1950s, Nakanishi was the most feared slugger in the
Pacific League. After winning the league Rookie of the Year award in 1952, he went on to lead the P.L. in homers in five out of six seasons between 1953 and 1958. Nakanishi signed this shikishi in black marker, inscribing his name and
"Nishitetsu Lions", his team during all 18 seasons of his active career.
