No, that women tag in the title isn't to entice you into the post, though maybe it's too late for that, huh?
The V.League, or V-Premier League, is the "major league" of volleyball in Japan. From 1967-1994, the Japan Volleyball League ruled the roost, but V.League replaced it for the 1994-95 season. Both men's and women's leagues have played since 1967, with 8 teams per league currently.
Much like NPB baseball*, the teams are named after the companies that own them, instead of their location. This means one of the women's teams is called Toyota Auto Body Queenseis.
*...used to be. These days, Japanese baseball teams associate themselves both with a company and a location, some more than others. I hear "Hiroshima Carp" much more often than "Tokyo Giants".
For the past couple of seasons, Hitz has been issuing sets for both the men's and women's leagues. Here's a quick look at the 2017-18 women's set.
No inserts are in the set, but there are plenty of autographs.
It appears that every player has a photo+autograph card, which is probably a mounted photo of some kind along with an autograph. These seem to be pack-inserted, regular-size cards. Hitz/TIC claims there are eight cards in this set, but what that may mean is there are eight designs - one per team - with the photos and autographs changing, much like the swatches in a memorabilia card changing. Each seems to be limited to 30 copies.
Seven players per team have a regular autograph card, for a total of 56 cards. These are sticker autographs. Each seems to be limited to 25 copies.
Finally, three players per team, or 24 total, are on "pinched"-autograph cards. Not having seen these in person either, these may be somewhat similar to cut autographs, where the player signed a card of some kind which was then framed. Each seems to be limited to 30 copies.
I'm not sure what promos are available, except for each team having a special "reservation benefit card" which features a few stars from the team in a combo card.
I'm working on getting some of the autographs, but I'm in no hurry...
Until next time!
