2011 BBM Rookie Edition

BBM announced recently that this year's Rookie Edition set would be released in February. For those who aren't familiar with it, the annual "Rookie Edition" set is a draft pick set featuring the players selected in last falls draft. The set will have 109 cards - 97 for the newly drafted players and 12 for active players (one per team). There's two insert sets - a 24 card "Next Generation" set featuring active players (2 per team I assume) and a two card "Rookie Of The Year" set. There are also possible autograph cards for OB players (of former Tokyo Big 6 players?) and parallel signature versions of the draft pick cards. And yes, Yuki Saitoh is in the set, so it'll be selling like hotcakes.

(Which reminds me - Deanna confirmed what I suspected - now that Yuki Saitoh has graduated, BBM will no longer be doing the Tokyo Big 6 sets.)
