This is an original uncut strip of baseball cards featuring Hall of Famer Victor Starffin, along with pitchers Giichiro Shiraki and Tadayoshi Kajioka. This strip is number nine in a series of 15. One strip of cards was found in each issue of the monthly magazine, Shonen Club, from October 1948 through December 1949. Just above the strip of cards, "Baseball Cards" is printed in Japanese. The paper stock used for these cards is quite thin. The strip features an ad for Mitsubishi pencils on the reverse.

Size: The uncut strip is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

Condition: The card has two staple holes, as it was originally bound into the magazine with a staple. There is also a short, horizontal scratch near upper right. Corners, borders and printing are all in superb condition.
