The JY 6 Yamakatsu set has always been popular with collectors because of the crisp, high quality, pure card color photos of the players, along with ultra white backs. There are two cards in the set that feature Sadaharu Oh, and of the two, the Flamingo Pose card is the more popular.

By 1978, Oh had already surpassed Hank Aaron's all time career home run record, and was on his march to 868 round trippers. At this point, Oh was 38 years old, but still managed 39 homers, 118 RBI and a batting average of exactly .300 for the season. This is an opportunity to obtain a high grade, beautiful representation of Sadaharu Oh displaying his trademark batting stance.
