The JDM 2 mask diecut set may be the most popular Japanese set among today's collectors. This, the key card in the set, features the greatest hitter of the 1940s and 50s, Tetsuharu Kawakami.  Kawakami played for the Yomiuri Giants from 1938 to 1958.  During that time, he won three league MVP awards, and he was selected to the Best 9 team in 10 different seasons. He also played on 13 championship teams.

Kawakami's managerial career was equally impressive, as his Giants won 11 pennants during his 14 years as manager, including an incredible nine consecutive Japan Series championships. This example is in top condition, with the eye and ear holes still intact and unpunched.
