Cards That Never Were Request

Editor's note: Steve and I had a nice little exchange about this on Twitter but I thought I would share it with everyone else to see if they have some nice scans of 1976 Japanese baseball cards.

Dear Steve of White Sox Cards,

I really enjoy your Cards That Never Were series and, if I could, I'd like to make a request for one. As I was researching something to write about this card:

1970 Topps #291 Leo Durocher

I came upon the fact that Leo coached in Japan during the 1976 season. He coached for something called the Taiheiyo Club Lions for just the one season. I can't find any cards related to this through my internet searches and think it would be a great idea for a "card that never was."
