Many 1940s menko sets were originally issued as uncut sheets. The collector would go home with the sheet and cut out each card individually. JCM 150 is one such set. We present it here, for the first time, in original uncut sheet form. Four of the cards depict specific, named baseball players, while the other four are generic cards of boxing, horse racing, marathon and American football. The four baseball players are Tetsuharu Kawakami (HOF) upper right, Noboru Aota (HOF) second row left, Hiroshi Oshita (HOF) third row left, Kiyoshi Sugiura bottom row right).

Size: Uncut sheet--10 1/2" x 3 1/2". Single cards--1 3/4" x 2 5/8"
