Home run legend Sadaharu Oh is captured in this extremely rare, quintessentially Japanese animation cel. Made for an unknown TV show and measuring 10x9”, Oh’s determined grimace is captured in what at first appears to be a batting stance, but instead of his customary baseball bat, Oh is wielding a katana, the sword proudly brandished by the respected Japanese samurai warriors. The subject is represented in beautiful color while the background is clear in this splendid work, which is in NM condition.
