2010 Rookie Edition
BBM's website this week announced the 2010 Rookie Edition set. This set features players taken in last fall's draft which despite occurring in 2009 is referred to as the 2010 NPB draft. The set will contain 114 cards of which 81 are newly drafted players (including the first card of Yusei Kikuchi), 24 are cards featuring current players as they looked when they were first drafted, 5 cards for the new 2010 managers - Norifumi Nishimura (Marines), Kenjiro Nomura (Carp), Marty Brown (Eagles), Takao Obana (BayStars) and Akinobu Okada (Buffaloes) and 4 cards that I am not sure about but I think are traded players. There will also be the usual collection of insert/memorabilia cards. The set will be released in early March.
