Incredible signed ball by the first player ever from Japan to play in the Magors. Murakami has signed on the sweet spot in English and on the side panel in Japanese. Murakami pitched for the SF Giants in 1964 and 65. He had very good success striking out over one batter per inning and posted an era in the 3s and had a 4-1 record. Murakami was forced to return to play in Japan becasue of his contract with the Nankai Hawks.. Ball is flawless and comes with a 1965 Topps rookie card of him as well.
