A large facsimile autograph adorns this sepia bromide. Oshita is seen here wearing his 1947 Tokyu Flyers uniform. We can only guess that he is holding his famous blue baseball bat. The text at bottom left indicates that the card was produced by the Tokyu Flyers Team Supporters' Association. The card is blank backed except for a stamped number 1075 on the back. We do not know whether this is the card's serial number, and if at least that many copies were produced. In any case, we present the first example of this card that we have seen.
