These off-white bordered cards contain colorized drawings of Japanese baseball scenes. Only three players are named on the cards--Hiroshi Oshita (HOF) second row left, Tetsuharu Kawakami (HOF) second row right, and Keio University star Hidekazu Iwanaka--bottom right. Iwanaka is described on his card as a pitcher, even though he was an outfielder!  There is also an image of an unnamed Yomiuri Giant receiving a goose, probably pitcher Tokuji Kawasaki.  The remaining four cards are generic.

Size: Sheet--3" x 9". Each card--1 7/16" x 2 1/4".

Condition: The sheet is Ex. However, the Kawakami and Oshita cards would grade much higher if cut from the sheet.
