It's A Pack: 2017 Calbee Series 1
I've shown a Calbee pack before, but as I mentioned then, I had another sitting around. So, what was inside?
Luis Mendoza's line is better than the Mendoza Line. Though he's a pitcher. He has a losing record over his career here in Japan, though he has a relatively respectable ERA (3.78 career in the NPB to date). Looking at his batting stats, in 14 plate appearances he's never reached base, striking out 10 times and grounding into a double play once.
The second card is a Starcard, which is about as good as you could get, other than the foil signature version of them or maybe a Lucky Card. The player is Hisayoshi Chono, who last year batted .283 but is only at .224 this year.
So there you have it. Two cards, two mediocre players. But wasn't that fun anyway?
