I've remarked a number of times in the past that I've run out of interesting things to say about this set (assuming I had anything interesting to say about it in the first place). This set is pretty much the same from year to year with only the players changing. Which isn't to say it's bad set - it's not. It's just the same thing every year.
The 2020 edition of the set has 120 cards in its base set. There are 107 cards for the 2019 draftees/2020 rookie class, a single "draft pick list" card and 12 "Early Days" cards.
The 107 player cards include the players taken in both the regular and ikusei drafts last October. Probably the biggest names (so far) in the set are Roki Sasaki of the Marines and Keito Mori of the Baystars. Normally I'd say that this is the first baseball card for everyone in the set but there's
As usual the photos from the cards were taken at the press conferences that the teams hold in December to introduce the new draft picks so as usual they're a bunch of boring shots of players faking throws, swinging a bat or just making a "guts" pose.

There's a "secret" version of each team's first round pick - these are short printed photo variants that feature a different boring picture of the player. I will make my annual comment that these cards would be much more interesting if they showed the players in their high school/college/corporate league/indy league uniforms.
Here's a bunch of examples:
As always, you can take a look at all the cards over at Jambalaya.
