Another New Dragons box set

A couple of months back, BBM released a box set called Neo Dragons that featured 12 young Chunichi Dragons players.  Last week, they announced on their website another new box set for the Dragons - the Veteran Dragons set.  This set features 28 cards - 27 "regular" cards and an insert card.  The 27 "regular" cards only include nine players total, but each player has three different cards in the set.  The players include the older players on the Dragons - Masahiro Yamamoto, Motonobu Tanishige, and Kazuhiro Wada for example.  I'm not sure, but I think the only insert cards available are autograph cards.  The set will be out in late February.

AmiAmi added a listing last week with information on the 2012 BBM 1st Version set.  As always, this set will be released in mid-April.  It looks like this set might be slightly larger than last years - AmiAmi's claiming the set will have 479 cards while they claimed last year's would have 458.  (The actual total for last year's set was 460 - 418 regular cards, 36 inserts and 6 memorabilia cards.)  The bad news is (if their listing is accurate) that the number of cards in a pack has been slashed from 8 to 6.
