Shigeo Nagashima is a cultural icon in Japan whose importance transcends mere baseball. He was the leader of the V9 Giants teams that won nine consecutive Japan Series Championships. He hit the game winning home run in the Emperor's Game. His image and personality are said to be the essence of Japanese manhood.
Here, we offer one of Nagashima's most cherished rookie cards. It is a large size premium adorned with his facsimile autograph. What makes this lot truly special is that the card comes nestled in its original Fujiya Caramel display easel. What a fantastic display this grouping would make in someone's hobby room! This is only the second Nagashima card with display that we have ever had the privilege to offer.
