it up for auction just now and fell in love with it. Its a 1973 Calbee card featuring Dragons catcher Tatsuhiko Kimata. I just love the composition of the card, the scoreboard provides the perfect backdrop to that posed swing.
Unfortunately I'm unlikely to ever own this card as its from one of the short printed series in 1973 Calbee which prices have been going through the roof on lately. The series this one is in (which runs from cards 210 to 236) was only issued in Nagoya and is one of the hardest Calbee series from the 70s to find. Current bidding is at 15,500 Yen (about $150 US) and counting with three days left, and that is for a copy of the card of a common player with dinged corners.
But oh what a card! It really reinforces the value of taking card photos in actual big league stadiums rather than spring training facilities like Topps did back then.
