Imported from Japan. These Sumo Trading Cards are based on the November, 2020 tournament rankings and were issued January, 2021. This is the first series of Sumo Trading Cards for 2021. Unlike previous series, each pack contains 6 random cards. Prior series had 5 cards per pack. The complete set has all 42 top division (Makuuchi) wrestlers, 28 second division (Juryo) wrestlers, 2 new Juryo wrestlers, 4 up and comers, and 14 Fighter cards for a base set total of 90.
There are also 9 different autographed cards. One is included randomly across every few boxes (20 packs per box for a total of 120 cards per box). Autographs are from Shodai, Wakatakakage, Daieisho, Tobizaru, Endo, Meisei, Yutakayama, Hoshoryu, and Akua.
Most of the text on the cards is in Japanese, however, the wrestler's English language name is also on the card for those of us who don't speak Japanese.
Yokozuna for this series are Hakuho and Kakuryu.
Ozeki are Asanoyama, Takakeisho, and new Ozeki Shodai.
As a bonus, we include Ultra Pro clear card sleeves to protect your cards. If you do not wish to receive card sleeves please add the No Sleeves item to your cart.
Once again we will be offering a limited number of Full Base Sets. Each Full Base Set contains all cards numbered 1 through 90 already removed from the package and inserted into protective sleeves. Will not include any autograph or special insert cards nor include the box. Empty boxes will be available separately for those who collect boxes. This Full Base Set option is for those who want all of the base set cards without having to trade.
