These little Yamakatsu cards are just too cute to resist
So I decided to jump into the fray and bought a few cards from the 1979 set (and one from the 1980 set which Jay didn't need). All I can say is that I love these little things!
These aren't the first Yamakatsu cards I've bought, I actually already have a 1978 set on the go, but those are larger cards (also awesome, I have to do a post about them too sometime), and I also have a couple of the post card sized ones including my only Japanese card of Willie Davis.
As is always the case, Dave has done a great overview of the Yamakatsu cards on his blog so I won't go into the details. The 1979 set has 128 cards and the 1980 set has 64 and I don't think there are any hyper rare short prints, so compared to Calbee sets of similar vintage collecting both should be a manageable goal, and I've already got bids in on some other ones on Yahoo Auctions. So this is my new collecting project of 2018!
