New Vintage Price Guide Available

The latest edition of Gary Engel's "Japanese Baseball Card Checklist & Price Guide" is now available.  This is the Second Vintage Edition and covers baseball cards from 1929 to 1990.  This edition is ONLY available as a pdf file.  The file itself is $25 - you can either download the file directly (Prestige Collectibles will send you a link to download the file from or for an extra $3.50 they'll send you a thumb drive containing the file.

I downloaded the file today and it's great.  It's the first guide to be in full color and being able to search it is fantastic.  One of the things that I like is that Gary added information about sets that he doesn't feel he has seen enough cards to create a checklist.  You get a description and a sample card for the set though so you can see if a previously uncataloged card you have fits.  And I've already downloaded it to my iPad so the next time I'm in Biblio I won't be fumbling with a book (especially since my copy of the First Vintage Edition is falling apart).

There's more details (along with the ordering information) here.

Great! I’m looking forward to getting my copy. I’m going to print a hardbound copy as well since I preferred the non-digital searches. Glad to see him finally adding some of these other previously uncatalogued sets in the books.
