Last weekend, I took a quick run to Nakano to look for some cards before meeting up with a friend. Our original plans fell through, but we still had a bit of fun that afternoon.
Because NPB Card Guy was so kind as to give me a copy of the latest Japanese Baseball Card Checklist and Price Guide, I had better, more accurate descriptions of several of the Calbee cards I was missing. Some new sets and series had been discovered or at least cataloged, which put me back on my goal of getting a full type collection of Calbee issues.
My current list has 251 different sets or series, an increase of 18. I haven't split up the 1970s series that are numbered together or examined the possibility of parallels in more modern sets, which could add even more cards to the list. Most of the additions were Homerun prize card variations and 1978 series descriptions. With my new lists and updated descriptions, I went to the Mandarake card store in Nakano Broadway.
I bought a bunch of other cards on Monday, which I'll post about soon... and I just received my latest Just Commons order too!
