Tetsuharu Kawakami is wearing a 1951 Yomiuri Giants uniform in the photo.  He is certainly taking a massive cut at the ball!  At age 31, he stood at the pinnacle of his career as an active player.  His OPS of 1.031 was the highest of his career that season.  His team was leaving all the others in its wake.  He would continue his career until 1958, leading the Giants to pennant after pennant.

Blank back card

Size:  6 15/16 x 9 3/4”

Condition:  Ex/Mt to Nm.  There is evidence on the blank back (extra paper and glue residue) that the card was originally attached to a product display sheet by the manufacturer. All examples of this card are expected to exhibit this quality.
