Japan's most important women's gymnast is Rie Tanaka - like America's pixies (Carly Patterson, Shawn Johnson, Kerri Strug) she's successful, attractive, and has a great personality (I am told). BBM is always happy to release a card set that'll sell, and with the success of other women-in-sports issues why shouldn't they release a special box set just for her?
The base cards in the set are all found below, giving a sort of historical timeline from her birth with a heavy focus on her adult career, plus several modeling shots. Autographs, memorabilia, and other special cards are found randomly inserted into the boxes. This might not be the first time Rie's had her own card set, and she's appeared in many of BBM's other women-in-sports and gymnastics issues. I bought my base set cheap, because many collectors want master sets, and buy multiple base sets to collect all the special random inserts.
Each card has a caption. I'm going to give you another.
I like the set, despite my goofy comments above! I wonder if they'll make another next year...
