A couple WBC related items:
- Topps has just released their Update set and (besides a bunch of memorabilia cards) it only has three World Baseball Classic cards. None of the three feature any Japanese players - one shows the US team celebrating after their walk off win against Puerto Rico, one shows Derek Jeter and David Wright and the last shows David Ortiz with Alex Rodriguez (who gets his third WBC card despite not actually playing in it).
- Jason's comment about Konami the other day made me go looking for a website for Konami (which has been added to the list on the right). In browsing their site, I was surprised to discover that it looks like Konami had released WBC cards. I'm not quite sure I follow what's on this page, but those certainly look like WBC baseball cards of David Ortiz, Akinori Iwamura, Jose Lopez, Derk Jeter, and Mark DeRosa. Are the Konami cards used with a video game? I know Deanna wrote something about this once but I don't have time to look for it right now.
