There are 99 "regular" player cards in the set. This section includes cards of both active and OB players. It is intended as kind of a season summary set. The active players included in the set are commemorated for reaching some achievement while the OB players included have some sort of relationship with whatever the active players did. I'm sure this explanation is clear as mud so let me give you an example. In Sapporo on Opening Day this season, Sho Nakata hit a sayonara grand slam to lead the Fighters to victory. Nakata is card #03. Card #04 is for Tsutomu Itoh, who hit a sayonara grand slam on Opening Day back in 1994. Here are their two cards:
|#03 & #04|
49 of the 99 "regular" player cards are for active players. As you might guess, these are not evenly divided between teams - there are seven Baystars but only two Marines and two Dragons in the set. As usual I'm not completely clear on what the active player achievements are (and most of the obvious milestones like Takeya Nakamura's 400th home run are commemorated in the "Great Record" insert set that I'll discuss in a minute) although I do know that the no-hitters thrown by Kodai Senga and Yudai Ohno are commemorated. Two players have multiple cards - Koji Chikamoto and Yoshihiro Maru. Other players include Tetsuto Yamada, Yoshitomo Tsutsugoh, Seiya Suzuki, Hayato Sakamoto, Tomoyuki Sugano, Munetaka Murakami and Shogo Akiyama. Photo selection is a little better than normal for BBM - I suspect that having to feature a photo from the actual event makes it a little harder to find boring photos. Here's some example cards:
The "Title Holder" subset features the 2019 statistical leaders for 12 categories for each league - Batting Average, Home Runs, RBIs, Hits, OBP, Stolen Bases, ERA, Winning Percentage, Wins, Saves, Hold Points and Strikeouts. If a player led the league in multiple categories then he has multiple cards - for example Shun Yamaguchi led the Central League in Winning Percentage, Wins and Strikeouts so he has three cards in the subset. The Leader cards are numbered #TH01 to #TH24. This is a change from previous years when this subset was numbered in continuation of the "regular" player cards.
This subset is a throwback to the Leader subsets that BBM used to feature in their flagship sets from 1991 to 2013. The big difference is that since the set is released before the awards voting is announced this subset does not include cards for the MVP or Rookie Of The Year award winners. Here's a couple example cards - I included the Soto one because I thought the framing was odd (and I should point out my scanner cut off part of the border of Matui's card):
