Neat set. Some of those action scenes are pretty cool.

It was pretty exciting finding them.... I think I was able to nail down this set from 1975 or 1976 and not later than 1976.

Nevermind. It's Dory Funk Jr. I should have looked at the card back.

The boots, trunks and hair seem to suggest Dory Funk.

Sumo do you speak Japanese?

I speak/read/write at a basic level. #7 is Dory Funk Jr according to the back. The card up close looks like he is wrestling a Japanese opponent.
