The Lefty O'Doul with Seals batboys card is a tough one. Only four copies have ever been found to date. In fact, all of the 33 cards known to be in the set are rarely seen. Although the image was photographed in the U.S., this card was produced in Japan, as part of a set featuring O'Doul interacting with both members of the San Francisco Seals, and with Japanese players.

This specimen is the only card in the entire JBR 80b set ever to have been graded by PSA. Thus it is a 1 of 1 with no other example graded higher. It is obviously a special card.

Size: 2 3/8" x 2 1/8"

Condition: PSA 3 (Vg). The number "3" has been stamped on the otherwise blank back by the manufacturer at the time of production, indicating that the bearer is entitled to select a third prize winner bromide attached to a display sheet that is associated with this set.
