I had mentioned a few months ago that former Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters pitcher Masaru Nakamura was the only Japanese player in this past winter's Australian Baseball League. Nakamura's team, the Brisbane Bandits, had published a card set and I was able to get his card from Shane, who along with Steve Smith are my main sources for Aussie cards. Shane had mailed it out a few weeks ago and it showed up at my house last week.
Nakamura's card was not the only thing I got in the mail last week. I finally received the box from Ryan yesterday. I'm going to be busy over the next few weeks dealing with the roughly 2000 cards he sent me.
