I was just about to do a post this week about wondering why BBM even bothered having a web site anymore since they hadn't updated it in over a month when they suddenly updated it for a couple sets that will be out shortly. So let me get caught up here on the soon to be released sets...
- BBM's last update until last week was for this year's second cheerleader/dance team set - the Dancing Heroine - Mai set. This is a 96 card set featuring cards of the cheerleader and dance teams for ten of the 12 NPB teams (the Carp and Baystars teams are not included). The set actually came out a couple weeks ago.
- BBM will be releasing several team box sets later this month. There's the Carp Authentic Edition (due out August 21st), the Dragons Autographed Edition (released on August 26) and the Tigers Authentic Edition (due out August 27th). There are 27 cards in the base set for the Carp and Dragons sets and 18 in the Tigers set. The Dragons set also contains an autographed card while the Carp and Tigers sets contain either an autograph or memorabilia card. The Tigers set features pitchers only.
- Epoch is releasing their first box set dedicated to an active team - the Baystars Game Used Uniform Edition - this coming November. The set will contain 17 cards - 16 in the base set and a "special" card that could be a memorabilia card or an autograph card.
