NPB Card Guy knows foreign leagues. And if you didn't guess by his name, Japanese professional baseball is his passion. At some point he dabbled in all of the foreign league's issues as well as other independent leagues/teams.
He's been clearing out some of his unwanted cards, and I feel very lucky to be able to help him get rid of them! In the past, he's sent me AAGPBL and Colorado Silver Bullets cards, plenty of awesome singles for my player collections, and of course great Japanese cards for my type collection. And he's sent me so many that it's pretty much impossible to show them all... though I've scanned them all and hopefully will eventually put together a series of posts to share them all with you!
His latest box to head my way was full of oddball leagues. Once you go below NPB baseball, things get pretty sandlot-y in my experience - I've been to Korean and CPBL games and they feel like AA-level at best... though I will say KBO has some very nice stadiums.
In the later 1990s, there were a few CPBL sets issued with lots of subsets and/or inserts, very reminiscent of Fleer Ultra. Just check out the logo on that card in the middle. Actually, I'd love to have full sets of those just for the designs!
NPB Card Guy and I trade pretty often... though I feel like I get the better end of the wishbone when the thing snaps. I appreciate the cards as always!
