Sadaharu Oh playing card, circa 1969
Until I'm able to afford a true Sadaharu Oh card I'll have to let this one serve as the one example in my collection. This is a playing card issued in Japan during Oh's career. It came out of a deck of 52 and they had different Japanese players. It only cost a couple of bucks. A true Sadaharu Oh Menko card goes for hundreds.
The reverse shows it was just a run-of-the-mill playing card. But it's an "Oh" card and it was issued when he was still active so it's fine by me.
