There are two Sadaharu Oh cards in the JRM 38 set. Over the years, we have had the privilege to offer three examples of the other card. This is the first time we have ever offered this version.

In 1960, his sophomore season, Sadaharu Oh batted .270 with 17 homers and 71 RBI. This somewhat pedestrian performance at age 20 was certainly an improvement on his .161 batting average as a rookie. However, at the end of the 1960 season, no one would have predicted the trajectory of his superstar career. Blank backed card.
