Default Anyone else collect BBM True Heart cards?

I've become quite a big collector of women's wrestling cards here in Japan. Anyone else? I know its a long shot... I'll post some soon if anyone is interested. Have most of the bigger names.

I see them while browsing for other cards. The wrestlers are really unique.

The women events in Japan are some of the best pro wrestling events you could ever go to. So much fun.

I collect all (or most) of the girl wrestler sets, all the way back to the first one in 1994. (boxed set shown below).

The autograph sets from the last couple of years are pretty amazing. They get almost everyone to sign, and there are 3-5 autos per box. Tough to collect those here in the US though.

Here's a random selection of this year's True Heart autograph cards.

The live events must be amazing to see in person.

Yup, over 100 signers, 5 or more autos a box, other bonus cards etc, make these a ton of fun if you're into that scene. Happen to have any autos? I'm paying big for Mio Shirai. Have a ton of her autos, but still need more!

I don't think I have a Mio Shirai auto. I have maybe 30 autos spread across all the sets. It's costly to pick up single cards from Japan.

Have you collected any of the girl bowling cards? Those look pretty cool.

I bought one box of the bowling cards once for fun.

I can get autos here very cheap. Most are $4 or $5. I have all of Mio's autos except for 2009 and 2012. Almost there!

Do you see many of the auto cards in card stores? the quantity of all the other Japanese girl sets problably keeps the prices supressed a bit.

Hundreds of them. Some of the big names (Mio Shirai, Kana, etc.) are like $30, but most are under $10. Very easy to find here.

That's Mio and Misaki Ohata. Together they are the tag-team "plus minus". I've been watching that for a few weeks now. Those polaroids are VERY hard pulls out of BBM. I've pulled three so far. One is Manami Toyota I'm more after the cards though. I've taken TONS of polaroids together with me and Mio already

(I'll upload some in a few minutes)

SWEET! I just tracked down probably the best BBM women's auto card ever made. Been searching for a while. $80, but very much worth it. Going to pick it up at the store tomorrow.

Awesome cards!!!

The 5-way auto cards seem to be exceptionally tough to find.

#d to 84 I think. Very hard to locate. I cant think of a better card to make either. Also Kurihara is retired and no longer signs.

Pre ordering a case of 2015 soon.
