I bought a lot of 50 2001 Calbee packs off Ebay last week and I thought I'd do a post on what I got.
The seller actually sent me 51 packs. They were all from 2001 Series One. That set had 72 regular player cards (doesn't look like that broke down evenly between teams), 18 "Title Holder" cards, 16 "Best 9" cards (for the 2000 Best 9 team less Ichiro, Tsuyoshi Shinjyo and Bobby Rose), 8 "Olympic Team" cards, 11 "2000 Nippon Series" cards and six checklist cards. There were also some sort of mail in prize cards (which obviously I didn't get any of).
I didn't do too badly on the 51 packs - I got 40 unique cards. It broke down to 26 player cards, 4 "Title Holder" cards, 2 "Best 9" cards, 2 "Olympic Team" cards, 4 "2000 Nippon Series" cards, one checklist card and one card that's not really a card but some sort of mail in thing - it might be what you send in to get one of the prize cards but I'm not sure. I was a little bummed that I got three of the "prize" cards as they really don't do me any good now. I also thought it was odd that I ended up with three Shingo Ono cards. On the plus side, I didn't previously have any of these cards with the exception of the "Olympic Team" ones, so that's 38 new cards for my collection (well, 37 not including the "prize" card).
Here's some of the cards:
The check list cards formed a two by three puzzle. The back of each card showed where that card fit in:
Lastly, here's one of the promo/prize cards. Maybe someone who can read Japanese can tell me what it is:
