Old And New Korean Baseball Cards

Jason did a post early this week showing pictures of a number of Korean cards that neither he or I had previously seen.  A couple show major league players including one item that is a pretty blatant rip-off of the 1980 Topps set.

Jason also let me know that he's found a bunch of information about a new KBO set for this season.  It's called Super Star Baseball Card and is a 126 card, pack based set.  There are 14 cards per team (there are currently nine teams in the KBO).  Jason added the checklist for the set to the Inventory Manager at Sports Card Forum - the set does not include any of the foreign players currently playing in Korea.  Besides the official webpage, the manufacturer also has a Facebook page.  It looks like the cards are being sold in packs of seven.  Jason found a couple other web pages with more pictures and information.  No idea how one would go about getting these.  Ryan spent a week in Korea back at the beginning of May looking for stuff like this so I'm guessing that these were released after his trip.
