This addition to the JBR 15 checklist was discovered only recently. Now we know that Shigeo Nagashima has at least two different cards in the JBR 15 set. This striking portrait is a welcome addition to the list of Nagashima rookie cards. Obviously, since it is the only example known at present, it is one of, if not the rarest of Nagashima rookie cards. Many Japanese still consider Nagashima as the most important player ever to appear in Japan Pro Baseball, making this an instantly iconic card. Blank backed.
