He’s often regarded as the greatest Japanese pitcher ever! Most likely no one will ever match his 400 career victories, and his 4,490 strikeout mark has never been approached in the more than 50 years since it was set. In 1960, the immortal left-hander was in the middle of his stellar, twenty season career. Of the three All Star games played that season, Kaneda was the winning pitcher in one game, and the loser in another encounter. 

Jintan Gum cards are always in high demand among collectors due to their scarcity and for their "chewing gum stick" shape which mimics the gum packages in which they were originally found.
