We were surprised to find out that this is the first JK 2 Karuta card of Victor Starffin that we have ever auctioned!  The card has been graded CSG 7, but we feel that this card is a very high end 7.  

Starffin had gone 17-13, 2.17 in 1948, which was an admirable record, since he was pitching for a team that finished well under .500.  In 1949, when the Stars surpassed the .500 mark, Starffin’s won/loss record improved as well.  He led the league in innings pitched with an astounding 376 innings and led the league in wins with 27.

Blank back card.  Player picture card only (no reading card included).

Size:  2 3/16” x 2 13/16”
