he JF 24e Fujiya Gum Premiums will be listed for the first time in the Japanese Baseball Card Checklist & Price Guide, Vintage Edition 3.0, which is currently scheduled for publication later this year. The JF 24e premiums differ from other JF 24 cards in that the player surnames and teams are listed within a vertical black box on the front, and the cards also contain facsimile autographs that have a thin white area around them. These rare cards will be assigned a scarcity factor of R5 in the new Guide, indicating that five or fewer copies of each card are known to exist.

With 400 career wins and 4,490 career strikeouts, it's no wonder that Masaichi Kaneda received contract offers from both the New York Yankees and New York Giants. In 1958, Kaneda had his finest season with a 31-14 won-loss record, 311 strikeouts and a 1.30 ERA.

Blank backed card.
