JCM 46 is one of the earliest Japanese baseball card sets to contain actual player photographic images. Each card contains a large, sharp player image, along with the player's surname and Tokyo Big Six University League team affiliation. JCM 46 has always been the most highly regarded prewar Japanese baseball card set.

Here we have a high grade example from this classic issue which came right from a pack that we opened several years ago.  Shigemi Sato, a member of the Waseda University baseball team, was the batting champion of the Tokyo Big Six League in the Fall 1930 season with a whopping .483 average!

Size: 1 1/2" x 5 1/4"
