The base set contains 87 cards - 72 player cards (6 per team), 12 "AVG Leader" cards (1 per team) and 3 checklist cards (instead of the usual 4). As usual the set has the same design as Series One and continues the card numbering of the player cards (Series One had card numbers 1-72 while Series Two has card numbers 73-144).
It's always hard to talk about player selection for a Calbee Series since no Series really stands alone but I will say that this Series seems a bit light on having "regular" player cards of big stars. Probably the biggest names in the set are Seiichi Uchikawa, Takeya Nakamura and Munetaka Murakami. There's a number of foreign players (Wladimir Balentien, Brandon Laird, Neftali Soto, Brandon Dickson and Po-Jung Wang) included along with four rookies (Roki Sasaki, Masato Morishita, Takaya Ishikawa and Yasunobu Okugawa) - all of whom were first round picks in last fall's draft.
I thought Calbee was doing better with their photos in the Series One set this year but I feel like they back-slid some with this set. I think they've fallen back into the "batters batting, pitchers pitching" rut a bit too much although there are a handful of decent photos. They've also back-slid on using a horizontal foramt - there are only two horizontal cards in this Series after there were five in Series One. Here's some example cards:
|#079 Seiichi Uchikawa|
|#125 Ryutaro Umeno|
|#138 Kento Fujishima|
|#144 Munetaka Murakami|
|#118 Haruhiro Hamaguchi|
|#075 Tatsuya Imai|
|#094 Roki Sasaki|
All the cards can be seen over at Jambalaya (including the Star insert cards and the limited edition box set called WINS Leaders). And Sean wrote a little about this set the other day as well.
