Player Collections - Baseball

I'm splitting off my Want List into separate pages for sets and player collections. I've split the players off into different sections. The "Starting Nine" are the main players I go after, and are in order of preference. Eventually, I'd like to itemize each card I have of them as a linkable page, but we're taking baby steps here.

  1. Both of the ads on this site are in Japanese or Chinese or something similar (I wouldn't know how to tell which). What's up with that?

    That's an impressive list, and it's a good idea you prioritized the players. But (maybe you already did this) what are you looking for from each player? Just base? Whatever you can get your hands on? An autograph?

  2. it's a chinese ad for HSBC.
    pretty weird.

    I like the format of your starting nine list by the way, makes it clear what you collect.
