2011 Calbee Pro Yakyu Chips to hit store shelves in Kansai, Hokkaido

With all that's been going on, I completely forgot to look into what was going to happen to the Calbee Pro Yakyu Chips this year.

In looking at the official Calbee site, I see the chips were delayed and will only be available in the Kansai (beginning on 4/11) and Hokkaido (4/18) regions.  As of 3/22 (when the Calbee page was lasted updated) there is no scheduled release date for the Tohoku, Kanto, and Koshietsu regions.

2009 Calbee Pro Yakyu Chips, Series 1

I went to the store the other day and noticed that the 2009 Calbee Pro Yakyu Chips were on sale again and picked up a couple of packs. And it looks like they've gone back to 2 cards instead of 1 (with a slight price increase I think).

Here's what the packaging looks like this year:

According to the official website, they went on sale on March 9th. Here's the checklist for the first series. If I have some time, I'll try to translate that for everyone.

Incidentally, here are the cards I got in my first batch:

021 Kensuke Tanaka
037 Naoto Watanabe
040 Takeshi Yamasaki
071 Tsuyoshi Shimoyanagi
090 Shigenobu Shima
093 Hiroyasu Tanaka

Calbee 2008 Pro Yakyu Chips: Series 1

The 2008 Pro Yakyu Chips went on sale on March 24th. I have yet to see any in the stores I've been to, but then I had a hard time tracking them down last year in Tokyo as well. Looks like I'll have to stock up again when I visit my GF in Sendai. I'm not really sure why many stores in Tokyo don't seem to carry them. Maybe I'm not just not looking in the right places?

The first series features 166 cards: 96 regular cards, 12 team stat cards, 2 league champion cards, 4 Climax series cards, 4 Nippon series cards, 4 checklist cards, 24 top player cards, and 20 special box cards.

I will, of course, be once again on the prowl for Yu Darvish and Masahiro Tanaka cards. It appears that there are no regular cards for Darvish and Tanaka in the first series, but they both have 3 non-regular cards. Guess I'll be going after these 6 cards.

NPB 2k7 Series 3 Calbee Baseball Cards: Video

I decided to record my latest adventure in opening up 10 bags of Calbee Pro Yakyu Chips and uploaded the results to YouTube. Not really exciting, but at least you get a chance to see what 1) these bags of chips look like, and 2) what these cards look like.

Notable cards: Shinnosuke Abe, Atsuya Furuta

I'm heading back to Tokyo tomorrow so I'll be able to scan in some of the better cards I've managed to attain.

BTW: I now have 23 bags of chips... Ugh... They actually aren't bad tasting, but there's no way I can finish off 23 bags of chips.
