This bookmark card with tassel, produced by Boken Oh magazine, depicts the world's greatest slugger, Sadaharu Oh, in his fabled flamingo batting stance. We would guess that it was produced c. 1963 to 1965, shortly after Oh adopted this batting technique. However, no date is printed on the card. Oh's name, position and team are printed in Japanese on the front, along with the name of the publication. The reverse is a grid in which a student can fill out his or her class schedule according to the days of the week.
