There are 32 different players featured in the JF 55 set. This is by far the largest number of players we have ever seen assembled for sale all at once. Only two players are missing--Takeshi Koba (HOF) and Masayuki Dobashi. All the others are here, including 16 HOF/Golden Players--Sadaharu Oh, Shigeo Nagashima, Isao Harimoto, Masaichi Kaneda, Masahiro Doi, Kihachi Enomoto, Shinichi Eto, Takao Kajimoto, Masaaki Koyama, Minoru Murayama, Katsuya Nomura, Isao Shibata, Tadashi Sugiura, Yasumitsu Toyoda, Kazuhiro Yamauchi and Yoshio Yoshida.

Each card contains the player's team flag, facsimile autograph, printed name, uniform number and position on the front. While every card in the set has color variations, just obtaining any version of virtually all the cards in the set is quite a feat. We are not aware of any complete sets in existence.

Size: Each card is 3/4" x 2 3/4".

Condition: Range--Good to Nm. The Oh and Kaneda cards are in particularly high grade.
