It looks like there's a conference on the mound with new Giants manager Shigeo Nagashima strategizing with the immortal Sadaharu Oh and an unknown pitcher and catcher. JRM 9 is a 30 card set which includes four different cards of Sadaharu Oh. Two notches were cut into the edge of each card by the manufacturer so children could shoot these cards with rubber bands! This could cause even more damage than flipping.

1975 was a disastrous year for the Giants. During Nagashima's first year at the helm, the team finished dead last in the Central Division with only 47 wins. Oh endured a rather ordinary season by his standards but still managed 33 homers, a league leading 96 RBI and a .285 batting average.

This is a very high grade card from a scarce set by 1970s standards. Blank backed.
