This card contains a dazzling rookie image of Sadaharu Oh, along with the most popular Japanese player ever, Shigeo Nagashima (2nd year). The O-N Connection, as they were known, would wreak havoc on opposing pitchers for the next 16 years. There are but a handful of cards picturing Oh and Nagashima together. These dual cards are even more highly sought than single player Oh rookies.

Size: 1 13/16" x 3"

Condition: SGC 1.5 (Fair). The corners are Vg/Ex to Ex, but there is significant horizontal surface creasing across the card front at lower center, which most certainly accounts for the condition downgrade.
