For the past couple of weeks I've been working a new schedule, which is messing with my concept of a week. I'm really excited to be on this schedule for what seems to be a few months, because it'll open up some opportunities that I haven't really had yet. But I'm losing track of what day it is.
With this new schedule, I won't be able to go to the card show in a couple weeks. It's supposed to be a smaller show, but I was looking forward to finding some good stuff from dealers I never see. So instead, I've been poking around auctions again, picking up nicer things here and there.
One thing I've been exploring is Japanese Woman's Pro Wrestling. I started with the 2017 True Heart set, what must be a fairly comprehensive collection of active wrestlers. And from that, I've been branching out into a handful of autographs. This isn't my entire collection - I dive head-first into many things - but it's a glimpse of what I have so far.
I haven't just been focusing on wrestling. Actually, there are very few autographs in all that I'm chasing, but I've made some great strides in other areas of my Women-In-Sports collection.
I've been debating whether to try to collect the autograph set from this year's Epoch JWBL set; it won't be easy, with nearly 80 cards. At 500 yen ($5) each, that's 40,000 yen ($400). And I won't be getting all of the autographs for that cheap. One particular card seems to regularly sell for $200, and a couple other superstars are pricey as well.
My apartment is a mess right now (there's a lot going on!), so I might be taking a few days off from posting to get caught up on things. So, until then...
