The latest issue of SCM is out. SCM is the Japanese version of the Beckett monthly magazine. Each month, there are a few articles, previews, reviews, and checklists for the newest releases including MLB cards, and of course a price guide.
The guide rotates between Calbee, soccer, and BBM listings and serves as a pretty good price guide/card guide for modern issues. Actually, I've noticed that the listings are more incomplete for recent sets; many of the 2013 and 2014 BBM issues don't have full parallel details included. The rotation isn't exactly consistent, as I recall them going Calbee-soccer-Calbee-soccer for a while. And Epoch and Frontier don't get listings in the guide; smaller issues and team sets are ignored just like Beckett does.
But I digress; it can be a useful reference, even more so than Beckett at times.
Included with the magazine are original cards (link to English-language checklist at JBC). The number of cards in each issue hasn't been consistent, though this year they've had six Cosmic Cross cards and six other cards in each issue. They are approaching their 300th numbered card (plus many unnumbered cards), and it would be cool to have them all, but that can be quite costly. So I've just picked up the ones that match my collection.
I missed out on some from last year's issues that randomly showed up at the card store last week.
