There are eight card fronts in the JCM 44 set, each featuring a different prominent Japanese player. Interestingly, there are ten different Ted Williams backs, each with a number from 1 to 10 and a math equation, but all having the same image of Williams. Any of the eight Japanese player fronts can be matched with any of the 10 Ted Williams backs! This card has Hiroshi Oshita on the front combined with the #7 Ted Williams back.

A left handed hitting outfielder, Oshita, a native of Taiwan, was known for his blue bat and his sordid off-the-field behavior. Oshita, a graduate of Meiji University and a trained kamikaze pilot, was selected to seven Best 9 teams and won three batting titles and an MVP award.
