    This was the packaging in the late 1980~1990s. Jim Courier, Gabriela Sabatini also had the same type of stickers in their packages. Anna Kournikova had a different string construction.

    OG simply stands for "Osaka Gosen". I do not recall exactly when they began using that designation for their basic SG strings. That old packaging is pretty cool stuff.
