1974 Calbee Shigeo Nagashima
I picked up another cool 1970s Calbee card over the holidays that I thought I'd share, its #404 from the 1974 set (in the ON Series) and features Shigeo Nagashima.
Its a fantastic photo of him, taken on October 14 as he left the field for the last time in his career. The composition is perfect, the way he is looking over his shoulders at the field really drives home the finality of it. The blue sky contrasted against the green grass and brown dirt, with the packed grandstands in between provides a perfect backdrop. I am not a Nagashima fan, but I absolutely love this card.
