Aloha ! I’m a Vladimir Guerrero Sr. Collector & seeking 2002 & 2003 topps KENEBO cards & inserts Silver Black boarders of him ! Willing to buy & trade of any Japanese players on US brands .please email me @ earlengbino@yahoo.com on any questions thank you 🙏🏼

NPB Card Guy said...

Sorry, don't have any of the Topps/Kanebo cards. I'd suggest taking a look at Yahoo! Japan Auctions and use a proxy company like ZenMarket or Noppin to buy anything you might find.

It has been 14 years since I have been to Japan. There was a great bookstore in Tokyo that in the basement they had baseball magazines and cards. Does anyone remember the name of the store and address? Any help would be great.

That bookstore might be Shosen Grande in Jimbocho
