Saw this Ichiro / Matsui / Ohtani 1/1 triple auto from this years Leaf ultimate sports release.
The scan is a little fuzzy but the pic...
It was announced today that Iwakuma will return to his native Japan to continue his professional career.
Too bad the Mariners couldn't capitalize when King Felix and he were a formidable top of the rotation...
Saw 2 auctions for the Ohtani nameplate cards from this years Immaculate. The first one:
The second letter looks like an A. But then the letter before it should be a T?
Alesmith, a San Diego brewery, is going to house the Tony Gwynn museum at their facility. They just started a crowdfunding campaign on generosity.com.
The $10 perk is a Topps baseball card created specifically for this...
Man, Nomo must have been in a hurry for this auto hound.
Just came across this eBay auction today. Would be Kuroda's first certified auto in the states. Supposedly it's numbered only to 5. Wonder if this means we'll see some more Kuroda autos in Topps products?
Traded my base Maeda for this gold version with Brewer Andy.
Picked up a nice PSA 9 Nomo RC for a decent price.
And finally a triple Japan relic. Not sure why the seller omitted Uehara from the auction title. He's the most desired out of the 3 depicted.

Picked up this blue ref for cheap. Hope he can come back healthy next year.
Picked up a few singles from the recently released Topps Updates.
Finally snagged an Ichiro rookie 9 for a decent price. The slab is a little beat up though. I may...
2 new cards this week for the Padres PC. Hope they both can continue producing next year.
Used my eBay bucks to partially pay for this one for my Japanese MLB PC. This puts me at 50/52. Still looking for Kashiwada (Mets 1997) and Takahashi Ken (Mets 2009).
Thanks for looking!
Recently started to add to my Padres PC after a long hiatus. Got most of these on COMC for really cheap.
Did a small PSA/DNA order taking advantage of the September $15 encapsulation special. Tanaka played 15 games for the Giants this year.
And a few more pickups for the Japanese PC...
When I saw that Japan was going to be heavily represented in this release I decided to go all the base, patch and auto cards. The only card I'm missing is the Darvish auto which is numbered to 20. I saw 3 copies go on eBay for $225 BIN, $250 auction and $280 auction. A little too pricey for...
Redemption: 2011 Marquee Museum Collection Auto of Tsuyoshi Nishioka
Received this in the mail today as its replacement:
Looking at completed auctions the base version went for $0.99, Red /99 went for $3.99. No past history of /10 selling but I'm assuming this is a $10 card at best...
