Things have been busy this week, as I've been settling in for a longer-term stay at a school. So my posts have been brief, but I'm happy to say that I've been able to post consistently so far this year. I hope it can continue!
My Women in Sports collection isn't restricted to specific sports, but I do focus mainly on gymnastics. It's my favorite Olympic sport and it's been featured in several card sets.
BBM has issued a few box sets for the Japan national gymnastics team over the years, and I've made it one of my goals to try to get one autograph or relic for every team member who has one. Some of these athletes have appeared in the Real Venus/Shining Venus series, while others are in the gymnastics box sets. Rie Tanaka had her own box set, but her autographs are quite pricey, so I've stuck with just a relic card.
