This card is one of the few that depict Sadaharu Oh in his 1960 Yomiuri Giants uniform. The distinctive red brimmed cap was worn only for that one season. Mr. Oh is posed here in a "ready to field" position. In 1960, Oh's second season in Japan Pro Baseball, he played in all 130 games for the Yomiuri Giants but batted a pedestrian .270 with 17 home runs. At the time, his career was considered a bust by most everyone. Most everyone ended up being wrong!

Size: 1 13/16" x 3"

Condition: Poor. There is a vertical cut at lower right.
