2017 BBM Carp League Champions
This newish release (mid-October) celebrates the Carp's league championship, and it comes with a really long name. Essentially, it's 2017 BBM Hiroshima Toyo Carp Central League Championship Card Set "Consecutive Victory". That's a long title. I think my post title works as a functional title for this set. Each 3000-yen box contains one full base set plus one insert or an autograph. There was no information about total production.
The base set of 45 cards is split into two subsets - "regular" cards are #1-36. These all highlight a particular game in the season, though they focus on individual players.
The final 9 cards are "Name Scene" cards and feature highlights of the season.
Five "Great Heroes" 3D insert cards were printed, each featuring two players. These are not serial-numbered.
There are 31 autographed cards in the set, serial numbered to 10 or less (one player has 20 copies). A quick count shows that there's less than 300 autographs total.
