For the first time in my life, I honestly dressed up as a baseball player for Halloween. I probably wore a jersey somewhere at some time for Halloween, but I never really dressed up after I got interested in baseball. I was a Tigers player because I had found an inexpensive jersey, but I needed a hat. So I headed to the Hanshin Tigers team store in Tokyo (yes - the Tigers are so popular they have a team store in another city) to check out their selection. I found the store by accident last year while taking a walk in the area. It's located on the street in front of Meiji Jingu Stadium (home of the Swallows), towards the subway stations. (I would later see a Swallows game and look inside.) I found my hat, and I spent a good bit of time poking around the expensive souvenirs looking for some in-house cards (they carry lots of BBM packs) or player-based souvenirs similar to the Fighters mini-banner I found this year. I didn't find anything easily identifiable as cards at first glance, but I decided to buy a pack of game day photos.
