In a career spanning over two decades, Sadaharu Oh claimed the mantle of baseball's Home Run King by crashing 868 round trippers as a professional in Japan. This bronze-finished plaque is the first of its kind that we've seen, commemorating the legend's induction into the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame in 1994. It measures 4.75x6.5" and includes a wood standee on back. The Limited Edition has "1/3000" engraved beneath the raised relief image of Oh and a Japanese-language plate of his accomplishments below. This is the first of its kind we've seen, a great honor for the man who inspired generations of young athletes, many of which have proceeded to play in the Major Leagues in America.
