For the 1960 season, the Yomiuri Giants unveiled uniforms which uncharacteristically contained red text, uniform number and trim. Apparently, this stylistic change was not popular, as the uniform was abandoned following the season. The fact that 1960 was one of the few seasons during this period that the Giants did not win the Central League pennant most likely played a role in this decision. As a result, this is one of only a few cards that feature Mr. Giants, Shigeo Nagashima, in this unusual uniform. Despite not being a part of a pennant winning team in 1960, Nagashima led the Central League in batting with an average of .334.
