The Kagome company produced this set of round menko cards to commemorate the San Francisco Seals Tour of Japan of 1949. The key card in the set is Seals manager Lefty O'Doul.

Nearly all JRM 7 cards seen to date are very low grade. Most are severely off-centered. Additionally, the paper at the borders on the back is generally slightly torn as a result of the production process. While PSA considers this to be a mid-grade card, it is one of the very nicest examples of any JRM 7 card, graded or ungraded, that we have seen. This example is the only JRM 7 card of any player ever to be encapsulated by PSA. As such it is a 1 of 1 at the PSA 5 level with none graded higher.

Size: 1 15/16" in diameter

Condition: PSA 5 (Ex)
