In March 1959, Yakyukai magazine published this player meikan as a special gift to purchasers of the regular magazine. Like nearly all player meikans, this small book contains a photo and basic data for every player in Japan Pro Baseball for the season in question. Naturally, since it is a 1959 book, it contains rookie information and photos for two of the greatest Japanese players of all time, Sadaharu Oh and Isao Harimoto. Their images and data are seen in the first image below the book's cover. This is the first time we have ever had the opportunity to auction an example of this player meikan.
