My flight home leaves in about nine hours and I need to finish packing up. It's been an amazing trip, filled with great baseball and interesting experiences. I hit 10 different card shops and managed to reduce my single card want list from around 200 cards to 16! I also managed to pick up a number of sets that I'd been looking for on the super cheap side. And of course, I bought a lot of cool cards that weren't officially on my want list, but once I saw them, I had to have them.
I'll be writing up stuff about the trip in the next few weeks, but I did want to post a couple quick pictures for something that I did yesterday. I went to Yokohama for a Baystars-Dragons match up and discovered that this year's Calbees were on sale at the ballpark. So of course, I bought a bag (only 100 yen) and opened it:
The best part is that in the distance above the card of Motonobu Tanishige, you can see the real Motonobu Tanishige.
