    Awesome, appreciate it!

    Did some more digging around and figured out who T. O****a was. The PSA/DNA certification listed him as Tsunekichi O****a (大下常吉) 1898-1972. He was a star pitcher for Waseda then later became their manager. After the war he returned to his high school in Hachinohe to coach their baseball team. Here's a short article about him on the Hachinohe city website (It's in Japanese so you'll need to use Google translate).

    Here's the final breakdown of all 6 players. I've included their names in kanji in case anyone wants to do further digging around.

    Atsushi Kono
    河野安通志 1884ー1946 61yo
    https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%B2...80%9A%E5%BF%97

    Tsunekichi O****a
    大下常吉 1898-1972 73yo
    http://www.city.hachinohe.aomori.jp/...60,43,265,html

    Takizo Matsumoto
    松本瀧藏 1901-1958 57yo
    https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%9D...80%A7%E8%97%8F

    Jiro Ito
    伊藤次郎 1910ー???
    https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E4%BC...AC%A1%E9%83%8E

    Hisashi Koshimoto
    腰本寿 1894-1935 40yo
    https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E8%85...9C%AC%E5%AF%BF

    Takeji Nakano
    中野武二 1884-1947 62yo
    https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E4%B8...AD%A6%E4%BA%8C

    I did simple searches around Yahoo auction Japan, Rakuten Japan and Mint Mall but all returned nothing. Couldn't even find sample images of their autographs using Google. So in conclusion I have no idea what to price them at. You'll most likely need to get a hold of some baseball historian/expert in Japan to get a ballpark figure.
