After breaking Hank Aaron's lifetime home run record in 1977, Sadaharu Oh didn't slow down a bit. 1978 was Oh's age 38 season, but he put up statistics like a man 10 years younger, belting 39 homers, driving in a Central League leading 118 runs and batting an even .300. His OPS was 1.048. All this in a season of only 130 games! Of the 34 known 1978 JY 11 large sized cards, three feature Sadaharu Oh. All three cards are offered in this lot. The backs of the three cards are identical and describe Oh as going from Japanese home run champion to world home run champion vying for his third triple crown. Alas, despite a great 1978 season, Oh failed to win that elusive third treble.

The cards are in outstanding, fresh-from-the-taba condition, and would most likely receive high marks from a third party grading company.

Size: Each card is 3 7/8" x 6".

Condition: All cards were recently pulled from their packs and are in Nm/Mt or Mint condition.
