WHAT'S JAPANESE FOR "GOT 'IM, GOT 'IM, NEED 'IM, GOT 'IM"?
Published November 21, 1995
NL Rookie of the Year Hideo Nomo is giving card collecting in Japan "a real boost," as fans in the Far East who never collected before want Nomo cards, according to the S.F. EXAMINER. U.S.-style trading cards have only been in Japan since '91, but the boom intensified after Nomo's American debut. Philip Block, Publisher and Editor of Yakyu, a newsletter for fans of Japanese baseball and baseball collectibles, says Nomo's popularity has also caused a crossover of American fans looking for Japanese collectibles (Lewis & Chapin, S.F. EXAMINER, 11/18).
