Now when I say he was missing from the sets, what I mean is that there's no "regular" card for him that lists his name on the front and his biographical and statistical information on the back. But technically Hoshino's in both sets - he's featured prominently on a couple pictures in the subsets from each set commemorating the history of the team. In the 70th Anniversary set you can see him being tossed in the air on the card showing the do-age celebrating the team's 1988 Central League pennant. In the 75th Anniversary set he can be seen on the far right of the card showing the team celebrating the 1974 Central League pennant - he's wearing uniform number 20.
