My part of this tradition the past eight years is to list the existing baseball cards of the draftees. The list of cards has grown smaller over the past few years as BBM hasn't done a collegiate baseball card set since 2013. This year there's only one draftee who appears in any of BBM's collegiate sets - Yuhei Takanashi who was drafted in the ninth round by Rakuten from JX-ENEOS of the industrial leagues. Takanashi attended Waseda University from 2011 to 2014 (I assume he played for JX-ENEOS in 2015 and 2016) and appears in two of BBM's TOkyo Big Six sets:
|2011 BBM Tokyo Big Six Autumn Version #27|
|2012 BBM Tokyo Big Six #08|
I don't know how many other former Tokyo Big Six players with baseball cards are out there in the industrial or independent leagues who could be drafted in the future so this may be my last draft post.
