For many years, we believed that the JCM 13d set was complete at 60 cards. The checklist found in the Japanese Baseball Card Checklist & Price Guide had not been modified in over a decade. Furthermore, the JCM 13a, b and c sets were all known to consist of either 40 or 60 cards. But wonder of wonders, here we have a JCM 13d card that we have never seen before! And who is the player depicted on the card? None other than Japan's Mr. Baseball and Mr. Giants, Shigeo Nagashima. This card would be an important acquisition for any Nagashima collector.

Size: 1 7/8" x 3. (slightly oversized borders)
