Magazine Cards From Ryan

Back to the cards I got from Ryan a couple weeks ago...

Ryan tracked down a number of the "appendix" cards I was looking.  These are cards that were given away with various magazines that Baseball Magazine Sha - the publisher of BBM baseball cards - publishes.  First up are several cards given away with Sports Card Magazine (SCM) between 2001 and 2008.  I've been trying to basically get all the baseball related, non-promo cards released with SCM over the years and this batch gets me down to only needing about 21:

2001 SCM #15

2002 SCM #22

2003 SCM #26

2004 SCM #40

2006 SCM #81

2008 SCM #109

Another thing on my want list is the cards that were distributed with Shukan Baseball's annual "Season Memorial" issue.  I had been under the impression that this edition of the magazine only had cards between 2011 and 2016 and the cards were usually for the two league MVPs.  However, I think that's incorrect - it looks like there were earlier editions as well.  I know for sure that the 2010 edition had four cards - both league MVPs and Rookies Of The Year - and it's possible there were earlier editions as well.  Ryan found me half the 2010 cards along with single cards from 2011 and 2012 and both cards from 2015 which leaves me still looking at least for the other two 2010 cards and cards from 2012 and 2014.

2010 Season Memorial 1/4 (Tsuyoshi Wada)

2010 Season Memorial 4/4 Hisayoshi Chono

2011 Season Memorial 2/2

2012 Season Memorial 1/2

2015 Season Memorial 1/2

2015 Season Memorial 2/2

The last batch of cards were given away with Baseball Magazine, another publication from Baseball Magazine Sha.  From what I can tell, there were twelve issues of the magazine between 2004 and 2008 that had baseball cards with them.  There were 36 cards in all, three cards for each magazine except the first two which had four and two respectively.  I've identified all but four of these cards and with these three that I got from Ryan I own 28 of them.  I haven't added the rest to my want list but I probably should as I get more serious about getting them all.
