Japanese Menko card, probably Sadaharu Oh. He played for the Giants, right. Now you just have to nail down a year.

Found this on the interwebs. May not be right - but its a starting point:

1958 Doyusha Japanese Baseball Menko Tatsuro Hiraooka (Red Background) HOF

Looks like he played for the Yomiuri Giants (19541966); Central League Rookie of the Year, 1954.

When I get that sort of card and I can't identify it, I have been known to take it to a Japanese restaurant.

Sounds good. If PSA agrees and labels it, then you find out it's wrong, the submitter can send it back for free as a mechanical error.

I can't make out the kanji, but I think it probably is Hirooka. He wore #2 and played for the Giants in this period.

I don't know how to do links on my phone, but I wrote a short biography of Hirooka here:
