Imported from Japan. These Sumo Trading Cards are the third series issued in 2021 by BBM. It is part of the Legends series and called Heroes.
Heroes features many of the top retired wrestlers over the years. The Base Set of 81 cards includes 6 Yokozuna, 12 Ozeki, 25 Sekiwake, 17 Komusubi, and 21 Championship Legends.
Similar to the first two series, each pack contains 6 random cards. Prior series had 5 cards per pack. Please note that each box will likely not contain a complete set but you will have duplicates allowing you to trade for a full base set.
There are also 45 different autographed cards. Autograph cards are included randomly across boxes (20 packs per box for a total of 120 cards per box). We are experiencing one autograph card per box though that can't be guaranteed. Some boxes have had 2 autograph cards. There are substantially more autograph cards in this series versus the prior 2 series. Autographs are from such legends as Musashimaru, Kisenosato, Kakuryu, Miyabiyama, Kaio, Kotoshogiku, Kotonoshiki, Aminishiki, Kyokutenho, Asahifuji and many more. Loose packs that we sell may contain an autograph.
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.
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 81 already removed from the package and inserted into protective sleeves. Will not include any autograph or special insert cards nor include the box. This Full Base Set option is for those who want all of the base set cards without having to trade.
Empty boxes will be available separately for those who collect boxes. The box also has the card checklist on the bottom.
