There are quite a number of different tobacco type menko rookie cards of Legendary Hall of Famer, Shigeo Nagashima. However, rookie cards from actual candy and gum manufacturers are far less common. While the tobacco menko type cards were produced by printing companies and were not sold with product, candy and gum cards were associated with popular Japanese products, and are thus more highly prized by collectors in Japan.

JF 24c is a sixteen card set containing large size, stunning black and white photo cards. It was a premium obtained by collecting smaller sized Fujiya Gum cards . The key card in the set is the rookie card of Japan's most popular player of the 20th century, Shigeo Nagashima. Nagashima is shown here using the swing that powered him to the 1958 Central League Rookie of the Year award.

Blank backed card.
