New Release: 2015 BBM Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters "Horizon" Box Set

 One of this year's early box sets is Horizon, a 27-card set featuring younger members of the Fighters. The set was issued basically to cash in on the continued popularity of Shohei Otani and Sho Nakata. The base cards, above, are pretty simple. There are 24 player cards and three combo cards; I need to find a combo card for my collection.

Each box comes with an autograph or relic card plus the full base set. Only 2000 total sets (and boxes) were produced.
 The base set checklist is "paralleled" in the autograph checklist - 24 single player autographs (25-30 copies per player) and three dual player autographs (5 copies per card). There are a total of 704 autographed cards.
The memorabilia set is made of 17 cards. Things get a bit complicated from there, best explained in a checklist form.

  1. Shohei Ohtani home jersey, vertical orientation, #/90 (patch #1-10)
  2. Shohei Ohtani home jersey, horizontal orientation, #/90 (patch #1-10)
  3. Shohei Ohtani visitor jersey, vertical orientation, #/60 (patch #1-5)

  17. Ohtani (home), Nakata (home), Nishikawa (visitor), Yoh (visitor) jerseys, #/30 (patch #1-5)
A total of 1296 jersey cards were produced. As far as patch versions go, they are serial numbered as part of the whole. For example, card #1 of Shohei Ohtani, is serial numbered to 90 copies. Serial numbers 1-10 are patch cards, and serial numbers 11-90 are plain jersey swatches.
