Masahiro Tanaka box set

This was a kind of odd item that BBM put up on their website last week: a box set for Eagles pitcher Masahiro Tanaka. Now, BBM has done box sets for specific players before, but they've all been either for players or managers who are retiring (Atsuya Furuta, Kazuhiro Kiyohara, Shigeo Nagashima, Sadaharo Oh, and Norihiro Akahoshi for example) or coming to America (Hideki Matsui and Masumi Kuwata). (OK, last summer's Masaichi Kaneda set doesn't fit into either of those...) But this is the first time they've done a set for an active player.

The set has 27 "regular" cards plus an insert card that could be a 3D card, an autographed card or a foil autographed card. The set will be released in mid-June.
