    1964 MORINAGA "TOP STARS". In 1964, there were actually two distinct baseball card issues created by Morinaga.  Substantially more common (though quite scarce in its own right) was the production known in informed circles as "JG 1."  It was a die-cut affair, providing admirers the ability to fashion stand-up figures.  However, Morinaga also made a non die-cut variety (JG 2).  Currently, there are eleven different confirmed.  Of those, we offer here three different, all of whom were major superstars in Japan at the time.  They measure 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" and include vital information on the reverse.  Included here are Shigeo Nagashima, Katsuya Nomura and Sadaharu Oh.  As is obvious from our photo of this group, all have merited NM+ 86 by SGC.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
