Now we can add another Sadaharu Oh rookie card to the list. This never before seen card depicts Oh in his 1959 Yomiuri Giants uniform. The coating of the image, the type of paper used, etc. indicate that it is not a reprint card. We have no idea as to the manufacturer of the card. However, from the size and characteristics of the card, it seems that the card was issued by the same entity that produced the similar looking card of the previous lot. We would not be surprised if the two cards were originally bound at the left edge into two different issues of a 1959 publication.

Size: 3 3/8" x 5 1/4"

Condition: The card appears to have been originally bound into a publication along the left border. As a result, there is a bit of minor fraying along the left edge. Overall Ex to Ex/Mt.
