Last year, when Japanese Baseball Cards Checklist & Price Guide, Vintage Edition 3.0 was published, we knew of 30 different cards in the JBR 9a set.  However, the set is no longer deemed to be complete at 30 cards.  Recently, after finding the collection offered here, the number of cards known in the set has increased a bit.  There are a few unique cards on offer in this lot.  The cards are a bit larger than the standard modern U.S. baseball card size, and they offer sharp photographic player images.

Thirteen cards featuring Hall of Famers appear in this lot:  Noboru Aota (2 diff.), Shigeru Chiba, Shosei Go (Taiwan), Hideo Fujimoto (Korea), Tetsuharu Kawakami, Makoto Kozuru (2 diff.), Hiroshi Oshita, Juzo Sanada, Junzo Sekine (Rookie), Katsumi Shiraishi and Shigeru Sugishita. 

Blank back cards

Size:  Each card is approximately 2 5/8” x 3 5/8”

Condition:  Nearly all cards would be Ex, Ex/Mt, Nm, or Nm/Mt, but more than half contain the number “3” written in ink in the upper left corner of the blank back by a previous owner.
