When I made my trip to Japan and subsequently went to Mint Opa Urawa (the card shop in my cousin's town) I had to pick up a few packs to bust. There were some packs of this years Flagship Topps as well as some Bowman and some assorted packs from the past few years. I can get those anytime so I decided to pick up a couple packs of this year's BBM. I don't think I pulled anything really good since I've looked them over several times but I did enjoy busting a few packs while overseas.
Overall these cards are really sharp looking. Each card has full bleed photography (a la Upper Deck) even though these are just the flagship issue that BBM makes. I think the design is pretty good too. It doesn't detract from the photography but I do think the addition of the team logo would be an improvement. I wish Topps could do a set like this (similar to Stadium Club) but they are too good to take suggestions from actual collectors!
So that pretty much wraps up my Japan trip. I think I'll be back on track here with a couple of pack breaks that I've recently done as well as a couple of trades. Plus the CSA card show is next weekend and I've been saving my money up for that. I should have a bunch of stuff to share from the show over the next few weeks.
