This is the only JF 9 Sadaharu Oh card ever graded by PSA, which automatically makes it a 1 of 1 card at this level, with none graded higher.  The last time we auctioned an Oh JF 9 card was in 2016 (ungraded of course).  The previous time was in 2001!  So, we must conclude that examples of this card aren’t offered for sale very often.
The JF 8 and JF 9 Jintan Gum sets have always been popular with Japanese baseball card collectors on both sides of the Pacific Ocean, due to their unusual size and large set size (120 cards each). In both sets, Sadaharu Oh is the most prized card. We often get requests for this second year card of the world's all- time greatest slugger. Well, here it is! 

Size:  3/4" x 2 3/4"
