Card Of The Week June 8

Here's another card from that Ebay lot of 1940's color bromide cards I mentioned last week. I think that this is a card of pitcher Shigeaki Kuroo of the Tokyu Flyers from around 1947 or 1948, but I'm not sure of really anything about this card. The seller on Ebay had identified it as Kuroo (and I think the Kanji on the bottom right says that too), but that uniform doesn't quite match the Flyers uniforms from that time. I suppose that it's possible it's from 1949, but the coloring was done incorrectly. (I think these were hand-colored.)

Anyway, it's still a cool card.

Yahoo Japan Auctions has a lot of Japanese baseball cards for sale. Especially the older menko and bromides. Many collectors search and buy cards there.
