Once again I've held off on posting about new sets coming out while waiting for BBM to get information about them up on their site and once again I've waited so long that some of the sets I'm waiting to mention are almost out. So let's get caught up a little...
- BBM's Carp team set will be out in mid to late May. It's a pack based set that will have 81 cards in its base set - 70 player cards, 2 BIG COMEBACK cards and 9 SHINING ORDER cards. There will be two nine card insert sets ("Heart & Soul" and "Contenders") and the usual boatload of possible autograph cards. (For the record, Niki has information on the Fighters, Dragons and Tigers team sets but BBM has not put up anything for them yet.)
- Front Runner Trading Cards latest offering is the third in their Heroes & Rookies series - this time it's for the Baystars. This is a box set containing 16 cards - a 15 card base set plus a possible autograph card. As usual, there is a bewildering array of possible autograph cards that includes cards with two, three or four signatures on it. The set is being released on April 29th (or thereabouts).
- Looks like Duael Entertainment is going to continue to publish "Super Star Baseball Cards" for the KBO this season. They posted pictures of the 2015 Season One box to their Facebook page yesterday. The set will be released on April 27. There really aren't any set details available (at least that I know about anyway) but just eyeballing the photos, I suspect that this set will be more similar to the Season Three and Blue Edition sets rather than the Season One and Two sets. That would imply a more expensive ($50-ish) box with a smaller amount of base set cards and more short-print cards. I would be very happy to be wrong about this however.
