This is the first time we have ever been able to offer a JRM 17 unpunched menko sheet. We can't remember when we last saw one, but it's been awhile. The set consists of eight larger cards (numbered 1 through 8) and two smaller generic cards. All of the larger cards except #7 contain the surname of an actual player. The player images are quite representative of the actual players, especially compared to other menko sets. Therefore, we have made the tentative conclusion that card #7 is a depiction of HOFer Juzo Sanada, but we are not 100% certain.

The eight player cards on the sheet are as follows: 1. Kiyoshi Sugiura 2. Henry Tadashi "Bozo" Wakabayashi (HOF) (Hawaii) 3. Toshio Kawanishi 4. Hiroshi Oshita (HOF) 5. Noboru Aota (HOF) 6. Michinori Tsubouchi (HOF) 7. Juzo Sanada (HOF)? 8. Tetsuharu Kawakami (HOF).

Size: Larger cards--2 1/4" in diameter. Smaller cards--1 1/16" in diameter.

Condition: The corners and edges of the sheet are in quite nice condition, and at first glance the cards are in very high grade, but most have hairline surface creases. Unpunched.
