New Release: 2015 BBM Buffaloes Achievement

The last BBM Achievement set to be released features the Kintetsu Buffaloes of 1979, 1980, and 1989. These were years the Buffaloes were league champions.
As with the other sets (Whales, Braves, and Hawks), the design is reminiscent of menko cards from the 1950s and 1960s. The Buffaloes design uses red for the front photo border and on the backs. There are 30 cards in the set.
Again, Printed Autographed Card partial parallels were included with quantities of 45-50 each. There are 22 cards in the set, uniquely numbered from the base set.

And autographs are again the main draw here, with 21 subjects inserted. One player has 35 copies, another has 62, and the remaining have up to 100 copies each. And like the Whales set, it's a bit difficult to find images; there aren't many of these posted out there. These are on-card signatures.

Like most other BBM box sets, 3000 sets were issued. One autographed or foil autograph card was found in each box. Suggested retail price is 4000 yen.
