The description states, first in Spanish, then English:

EL PENDULO DE JORGE AGUILAR “EL RANCHERO’

THE “PENDULUM PASS” BY JORGE AGUILAR “EL RANCHERO”

— The move described is so named for the movement of the matador’s arm behind his back as he waves the cape. His nickname was earned charro bullfighting. He died in the ring.

This card likely dates from the 1960s.
