Card Of The Week September 25

The Yokohama DeNA Baystars clinched a playoff spot last week,  This is the first time that the Baystars have made the Climax Series since the Central League adopted the playoff format in 2007.  The last time the Baystars played beyond the end of the regular season was 1998 when they defeated the Seibu Lions in the Nippon Series.  This was only the second time that the franchise had appeared in the Series - the only other time was 1960 when they were known as the Taiyo Whales and defeated the Daimai Orions.

Here's a couple cards commemorating the 1998 Championship:
