    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.
