Most of my player collections are very limited in scope to keep the budget and size down. But there are a few players who I chase every card for: Charlie Hough, Jose Altuve, and Geoff Geary. Altuve's collection skips the hits and parallels, but Hough and Geary are attempts at 100% super collections, printing plates and all.
I have two semi-super collections for Japanese players, too. And like my Hough, Altuve, and Geary collections, there aren't many cards left that I can find. So every new card in my collection is a big deal.
Motonobu Tanishige is neither playing nor managing these days. In 2017 he did commentator work, though I can't tell if he continues to do so. However, he's popped up in some OB (retired) sets recently. While I don't usually chase parallels for my Japanese player collections, I do grab them if they're a good price. So this gold foil autograph is a beautiful shiny addition to his collection.
The above card from the 2008 BBM Nippon Series set was off my radar, but I came across it while flipping through cards with Dan. It's always special to add an older card to my player collection, but it's a real treat to come across a card you didn't realize existed... even if it is a fairly mainstream card!
