Mastro April 2006
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Here are five complete and uncut full sheets of scarce 1950 Japanese Menko baseball cards. The 10-1/2" x 15-1/4" items (all of which are printed on both sides) contain playing card-style sets that include 52 leading Japanese players—plus a Joker featuring Babe Ruth! This colorful issue, referenced in the Engel catalog as JCM #21, marks one of the few occasions that Ruth appeared on a Japanese card. Overall EX/MT to NM condition. A seldom-offered display piece, presented here in an exciting multiple.
