With every start of the season, BBM releases baseball card sets showcasing a team.
While in Japan, for the first game of the season, I saw the release of the “BBM Yomiuri Giants Baseball Card Set 2015 – GIANT STEP” which costs about Y2,500 and only 3,000 sets created.
The baseball card set features a total of 27 cards + 1 special card (there are a total of 9 special cards) and created in collaboration with Baseball Magazine Sha and to my satisfaction, the card that I received was one of my favorite players in the NPB, shortstop Sakamoto Hayato (#299 of #333).
The cards themselves are cool. Infield backgrounds removed and visual effect in the background. Fortunately, the backgrounds were removed with care, so no chopped out uniforms or anything problematic.
The rear end of the card features the players statistics and information on each player.
It’s important to remember that this was a late March 2015 release, so you are not going to find Mikolas or Donoue cards.
But these BBM sets are for the fans, one can expect a more expansive set to come out this month with the more expensive BBM 2015 Yomiuri Giants Baseball Set.
