Unexpected New Stuff

on January 25th, 2015 by NPB Card Guy

BBM announced a couple of new sets this past week, each of which caught me by surprise.- I suppose I shouldn’t have been surprised that BBM was putting out a Softbank 10th Anniversary set but I was, especially since I would have thought that such a set…

2013 BBM 最強外国人伝説2 DEEP IMPACT (Strongest Foreign Legends 2 Deep Impact) Box Break [image heavy]

on January 24th, 2015 by Jason Presley

     I finally broke down and picked up a box of BBM’s 2013 Strongest Foreign Legends 2 Deep Impact set, or given the checkist, it could have simply been titled 2013 BBM Even More Foreigners, since very few of them were very successful, much less "strong legends".  This is the first set to include a certified autograph card of Sir Hensley "Bam-Bam" Meulens.  He signed only 48 cards, and so far

Mets baseball cards from Japan

on January 19th, 2015 by Paul

I have a number of Japanese baseball cards in my collection. Most feature Japanese players who signed with the Mets or North American players who went on to play in the Atlantic League. Until recently, I didn’t have any Japanese baseball cards of Major League Baseball players… it just never occurred to me to look […]

2014 In Review – Other Card Companies

By my count (looking at Jambalaya’s page for the 2014 baseball card sets), there were 19 sets released in 2014 by manufacturers other than BBM and Calbee.  This is certainly the most in the past few years and I suspect it’s the most in the 25 year…
