Giants Menko Card

Giants Menko Card
A Japanese baseball menko card. As Wikipedia explains, "Baseball menko are an early type of Japanese baseball card, originally designed for use in the children's game of menko, but now avidly collected by baseball fans and card collectors. ('Menko' is both the singular and the plural form.)"

For more information on baseball menko, see John Gall's fascinating book, Sayonara Home Run!: The Art of the Japanese Baseball Card.

For another example, see Flyers Menko Card.
