Katsuya Nomura may have been the greatest catcher that the world has ever produced!  Here’s why.  He belted 657 home runs during 27 year career (1954-1980). He was perhaps the Pacific League's greatest pre-Ichiro player and certainly the best catcher in the history of Japanese baseball. He was selected to the Best 9 for 13 consecutive seasons. He won the triple crown in 1965. What’s more, after retirement, he went on to become a very successful manager.

This card stands at the PSA grading pinnacle, having attained the grade of PSA 9 (hand cut) with none graded higher.  All JCM 14f cards are considered by PSA to be hand cut, so the grade of any JCM 14f card always comes with a qualifier.  If you want a mint Nomura card, look no further.
