2018 BBM Japanese Sumo Cards Arrive - 18 January 2018!

The next issue of sumo cards is right around the corner releasing on 18 January.  The set promises the usual cards: 70 base cards (although it appears this might actually only be 69 since Yokozuna Harumafuji retired due to an abuse scandal), 2 new Juryo cards, 5 Young Hopefuls, and 14 Off Shot cards.  Plus there will be special autograph inserts that usually fall once every few boxes.  Here are pictures that I pulled off of BBM's website.  I've found that Rakuten is a good place to order and prices are fairly reasonable.

  3. I have sets of these cards from 97 & 98. Some in unopened packs. Is there a market for them?

    1. Unfortunately not, except for the insert cards. They made a ton of cards during those years and all the collectors have the sets already.
