Taguchi was the first round draft pick of the then Orix Blue Wave in the 1992 draft (which was held in the fall of 1991). His BBM and Takara rookie cards were from the 1992 sets (#448 for BBM). His first Calbee card was not until 1995 (#152).

Taguchi was never a great player but for some reason I always liked him. He'll be someone I miss now that he's retired.
