New Historic BBM set
BBM recently added information on their website about a new historic set. It's called something like "Golden Legend Of The B's 2011 - 70's Revival". The set highlights both the 2011 Orix Buffaloes and the 1970's incarnation of the two teams that merged in 2005 to become the Orix Buffaloes - the Hankyu Braves (who in 2004 were the Orix Blue Wave) and the Kintetsu Buffaloes. The set has 99 "regular" cards - 19 for the current team, 30 for OB Braves players, 30 for OB Buffaloes players, 2 for a "Masaru Masaru scene" (according to Google Translate) subset, and a nine card subset for each team which I'm guessing are either team Best 9's or some sort of team leaders. There are two nine card insert sets - one for each team - and the possibility for autograph cards. The set will be out at the end of April.
