The Kagome company is well known to collectors of Japanese baseball cards for having produced a number of menko sets during the 1940s and 50s. The company was also quite active in the production of non-sport sets during the same era. This sheet features two cards of Popeye. In one card, he appears with Mickey Mouse. It's like a Babe Ruth/Lou Gehrig card (or Oh/Nagashima card) of early cartoons!

Size: Each card is 1 3/8" x 2 1/4". The uncut sheet is 4 1/4" x 11 1/4".

Condition: The sheet is Ex/Mt. Most cards would grade Nm or better if cut from the sheet, including the Mickey Mouse/Popeye card.
