The nineteen large size cards in this set include eight cards with white facsimile autographs, and 11 pure cards with no text or autographs on the front. The Frankie Frisch card is one without the printed autograph. The baseball card offered here does contain an actual, black fountain pen signature. Oddly, the card was not signed by Frisch. In fact, we do not know the identity of the person who signed the card. While we are unable to read the signature, we are convinced that it was not a member of the 1931 Tour party.

At any rate, the card is exceedingly scarce. The Japanese Baseball Card Checklist & Price Guide, 2nd Vintage Edition has assigned a scarcity factor of R5 to the JBR 105 Yuasa set (5 or fewer copies of each card known). This is a wonderful opportunity for someone to obtain a rare card of Frankie Frisch wearing his 1931 U.S. Tour of Japan.

Blank backed card.

Size: 3 3/8" x 5 3/8"
