According to the Japanese Baseball Card Checklist & Price Guide, Vintage Edition 2.1, cards from the scarce gold border version of JCM 24 Hoshi Gangu are valued at two to five times the price of the regular white bordered cards. The card on offer here is one of the key cards in the set, as it features 400 game winning pitcher, Masaichi Kaneda, with Mr. Giants, Shigeo Nagashima in the background.
This specimen stands at the pinnacle of all examples graded by PSA, as it has earned the grade of PSA 8. It is the only Kaneda/Nagashima gold bordered card to achieve this lofty height, with none higher. This is a special card from one of the most popular sets among collectors of Japanese baseball cards, and would be a cornerstone of any high grade collection.
