This is only the third example of this card ever seen. Japanese Baseball Cards Checklist & Price Guide, Vintage Edition 3.0 has assigned this set a scarcity factor of R5, meaning that five or fewer examples are known for most cards in the set. Mizuhara was a star player at Keio University and a member of the All Japan team that played the U.S. Major League All Stars with Babe Ruth in 1934. However, he is probably best remembered as the long time manager of the Yomiuri Giants (1950-60) and Toei Flyers (1961-67, 69-72). As a manager he won nine pennants and five Japan Series championships. Blank backed.
