I was wrong!
A couple of months ago, I met TakaTanakaGiants on SCF. He lives in Japan and generously sent me & my students a nice care package of Japanese trading cards. Since then, we've become friends and he's offered to help me out by buying wax packs and grab bags for me at the local card show in Japan.
So in early April, I sent him ¥4,000 ($50.68) and here's what he picked up for me:
1000 Yen Grab Bag (4 Wax Packs & An Insert)
Four 2011 BBM Packs: Fighters, Tigers, Carp, & Dragons
2001 Nigel Wilson Lenticular Insert
500 Yen Grab Bag (x3) (3 Wax Packs & An Insert)
Grab Bag #1
Three BBM Packs: 2012 Historic Collection, 2011 Eagles, & 2011 Giants
Three BBM Packs: 2011 Historic Collection, 2011 Dragons, & 2012 Marines
2002 Michihiro Ogasawara Insert
Grab Bag #3
Three BBM Packs: 2011 Carp, 2012 Rookie Ed., 2012 Marines
Takayuki Kishi Parallel (#'d 32/60)
BBM Wax Packs (x2)
2011 & 2012 1st Version Packs
Kenji Johjima Acetate Japanese Insert
Japanese Final Fantasy Trading Cards
I'm very excited to add eleven new packs to my Japanese Wax Pack Collection. Plus I was able to add some cool inserts to my binder.
Domo arigato TakaTanakaGiants! I appreciate you going out of the way to help me with my project. If any of you are interested in collecting Japanese baseball cards, I encourage you to check out his YouTube videos. He has some of the best and unique pack breaks on You Tube and one of the most insane 2012 Topps Tribute collections out there.
I hope all of you are enjoying your holiday weekend. Stay safe and sayonara!
