One of the earlier bloggers who jumped into the Great 2012 Summer Clearance Trade was Ryan at the "This Card Is Cool" site. Ryan was on his way to Japan and said it would be awhile before I got anything from him. A package from Japan arrived the other day full of Japanese baseball cards. Cool. Here's a sample.
About half the cards are published by a Japanese magazine called Baseball Magazine.
