Each pack of JF 55 Jintan Gum also contained one plastic card. The front contains the player's facsimile signature below the team flag and above the player's surname, uniform number and position. Each player had cards issued in various colors. The front designs were identical for the different colors, while the back designs were slightly different depending on the color.

Four players, including Shigeo Nagashima, had special, limited edition, red and orange cards produced with black & white photos embedded in the card. Seen here is the Shigeo Nagashima orange photo card. This is the first time in our 33 years of participation in the Japanese sports card and memorabilia hobby that we have ever offered the orange Nagashima JF 55 card with photo image. Obviously, the card is not commonly seen.
