My post here is going to kind of echo what Ryan's already written about the set but hopefully I've got some new things to say about the set. The base set has 36 cards - 8 of which are the Tigers' 2016 draft class. The base set also includes cards for manager Tomoaki Kanemoto and ni-gun manager Masayuki Kakefu (aka Mr Tigers). The set pretty much has everyone you'd expect - Kosuke Fukudome, Takeshi Toritani, Randy Messenger, Yoshio Itoi, Tsuyoshi Nishioka, Shintaro Fujinami, etc.
There are 36 "1 *" variants for the set so (obviously) one for each card in the set. Ryan says that these are all photo variants but I have to disagree with him - the majority of them are actually crop variants. There are only four actual photo variants among the "1 *"s - Fujinami, Fumiya
Hojoh, Itoi and Toritani. There are 18 "2 *" variants for the set that are all photo variants. So the total number of cards that I have for this set is 90.
Here's some examples of the variants - first all three of the Itoi cards (base card on the left, then "1 *" variant, then "2 *" variant:
|Backs of #31|
|#24 (1 * variant)|
|#27 (2 * variant)|
One other thing Ryan included with the set is the promo card of Kento Itohara. As he points out in his post, this is a very odd promo card in that it doesn't look much like the regular cards in the set. Really the only thing the promo card and the regular card of Itohara have in common is the photo on the card. Here's the promo card:
