    1974 Wes Parker Game Worn Nankai Hawks (Japan Pacific League) Jerseys Lot of 2. After a successful nine-year Major League career as the Los Angeles Dodgers' ever-dependable Gold Glove first baseman, Mr. Steady set sail for The Land of the Rising Sun to play one final season of professional baseball with the Nankai Hawks of the Japan Pacific League. Parker hit .301 for Nankai and won the league's Diamond Glove Award for his stellar fielding at first base. Parker always speaks fondly whenever he recalls his single season with the Hawks, which played their home games in Osaka Prefecture and have been a staple of Nippon Professional Baseball since 1938.
