Of course the whole attraction of the Genesis set is not the base set but the autograph and memorabilia cards. Since I was just getting the base set it was relative inexpensive - I picked it up off Yahoo! Japan Auctions for 2000 yen. With my auction fees from Noppin it was about 3000 yen in all (not including shipping to the US - I had this shipped with the Calbee Series Three set).
The base set has 108 player cards - 9 per team. This has been the standard size of the Genesis set since BBM started publishing the set in 2012. In addition there are 12 team checklist cards which brings the total size of the base set to 120 cards.
The players featured in the set include most of the big stars of NPB - Tetsuto Yamada, Yuki Yanagita, Yoshihiru Maru, Seiya Suzuki, Tomoyuki Sugano, Yusei Kikuchi, Masataka Yoshida, Shogo Akiyama, Takehiro Norimoto and Yoshitomo Tsutsugoh among others. There don't appear to be any rookies in the set and there's no late signing foreigners in the set this year. There are two players in hte set who don't appear in either of BBM's flagship sets (1st and 2nd Version) this year - Kazuki Tanaka of the Eagles and Takumi Ohshima of the Giants.
Here's some example cards. As with last year's set, the cards didn't scan well and look better in person. The bright gold foil swooshes on the left side of the cards don't look so bright in the scans.
Like last year's set the team checklists are extremely boring:
