This is the only time we have ever seen these cards! The top 18 cards on this uncut sheet are the starting lineup of the Osaka Tigers, followed by the starting lineup of the Yomiuri Giants. On each card, the player surname and position are printed. The remaining cards, in some cases, contain images that have a resemblance to some of the 18 players, but, for now, we will describe those cards as generic. The named player cards each contain a baseball with a number printed on it. Here is a list of players by number:

Tigers / Giants
1 Shosei Go (HOF)(Taiwan) / Shigeru Chiba (HOF)
2 Masayasu Kaneda / Katsumi Shiraishi (HOF)
3 Kaoru Betto (HOF) / Noboru Aota (HOF)
4 Fumio Fujimura (HOF) / Tetsuharu Kawakami (HOF)
5 Takeshi Doigaki / Haruyasu Nakajima (HOF)
6 Tamaichi Tamaki / Kikuji Hirayama
7 Tsuguo Goto / Tokuji Kawasaki
8 Tadayoshi Kajioka / Toshiaki Takemiya
9 Zenzo Hasegawa / Kisaku Yamakawa
