These small cards were originally distributed as the cardboard centerfold of an unknown magazine. The lot offered here is one of the two centerfold pages (1/2 of the complete set).

The complete 120 card set may be the largest set from the 1950s, with headshots of 240 players back to back. Player name, position and team are printed in Japanese text below the player image. One side of each card contains green ink, while the other side contains red ink. The top and bottom borders have tabs. We have no idea why the tabs exist, but we assume that the cards are to be used in a game.

12 Japan Hall of Famers are included on the sheet offered here--Masaichi Kaneda, Futoshi Nakanishi (rookie), Katsumi Shiraishi, Makoto Kozuru, Atsushi Aramaki, Kaoru Betto, Yukio Nishimoto, Shosei Go, Hiroshi Oshita, Kazuto Tsuruoka, Tokuji Iida and Ryohei Hasegawa. There is a lso a rookie card of Hawaiian, Jun Hirota.

Size: Each card is 5/8" x 1 5/8". The sheet is 10 1/4" x 14 1/2".

Condition: Some crinkling and creasing in the corners. Most cards on the sheet would be Nm/Mt if cut from the sheet.
