The JF 35a set carries an R5 designation in the Japanese Baseball Card Checklist & Price Guide, Vintage Edition 2.1 by Gary Engel, signifying that five or fewer copies of this blank backed card are known. Actually, we know of only two examples at this time. Reno Cheso, a San Francisco native, played all around the diamond during his pro baseball career (1948-1955). He spent most of his time with the San Francisco Seals, generally batting nearly .300 with medium power. Cheso was a member of the San Francisco Giants Tour of Japan in 1949. Blank backed card.
