Not sure if you have done this yet, but I just wanted to confirm that you can.

Thanks! There are a few Cubs fans around here but mostly Rangers and Cardinals fans. I was born and raised in Oklahoma City and went to OU.

are you planing on keeping the set or trying to sell it once you complete it?

I will definitely keep it. I pretty much just collect nothing but PC and go for sets. I don't do much selling in the hobby.

Jordan Zimmermann /99 and Koji Uehara /99. I put $30 on a Zimmermann with 1 second left on eBay while it was at $14 and still didn't win it. There is another one on eBay right now but the guy won't take less than $34. I think if another one goes in auction format I could get it for $15-$25.

I've seen one as well on eBay but it has been a long time. I'm not sure why it is so hard to find. I guess the Japanese collectors have them all? Thanks for keeping an eye out for me!

A year or two ago, a start up company starting working as a middleman between US ebay sellers and Japanese buyers. It has taken off since then, especially with the weakening dollar. Most sellers probably don't realize that a lot of their Japanese player cards are still ending up over here. Even when they don't select worldwide shipping as an option.

Ah I see! That is interesting. The Asian players always seem to be difficult to find/expensive. I am working on another set and still need 2 Ichiros and 1 Matsui.

For that reason, this is one of my most prized cards.

EXCELLENT CARD! That's an easy 200-300 over here.

I agree. I just started this set in 2009 and had about 17 of them so I figured I might as well complete it. Not a super expensive venture.
