I thought I'd share my ongoing obsession with the 2021 Topps Japan Edition Set. For those who may not know, it is a fairly straight-forward set - 220 base cards, 2 small simple insert sets, 5 color parallels (all numbered to 99 or less), rare autographs (all numbered less than 200 I believe), and very rare relics (numbered only to 10).

I have nearly 2 complete base sets, 2 sets of each of the inserts and
I've been accumulating as many parallels as I can of this set and am currently up to 71 parallels plus 2 autographs.

To date, I have 24 Cherry Blossom parallels (numbered to 99), including the Pujols I got in the SCC Break and a Vlad Guerrero. Even though these are the highest numbered parallel, they are the most sought after.

I am still trying for a Jazz Chisholm (one of which sold last night on eBay for $395, I was short in my bid by about $380, ha).

I have 27 Jade Greens, numbered up to 75 - Tatis and Judge, being the tops

5 Golds, numbered to only 25:

15 Purples, numbered to 50

and 2 Autos - Mountcastle numbered to 175 and Arihara numbered to 200

If anyone comes across any of these, keep me in mind. I will get you something for whatever you can send me.

Really cool! Thanks for sharing your progress on this set Larry. Would you be interested in us setting up another group break for one hobby box?

Since my original post in this thread, I have added some more of these Japan Edition parallels:

5 more Cherry Blossoms (numbered to 99) so I now have 29 of these. Newest ones include Dylan Carlson and Joey Bart

5 more Purples, numbered to 50, so I now have 20 purples

3 more Jade Green, numbered to 75, so I now have 30 Jade Greens

and I added a Bobby Dalbec auto (numbered to 200), which is my third auto from this set

So in total I now have 84 parallels on my quest for a parallel of every player in the set (there are 220 players in this set), all numbered 99 or less, plus 3 autos, numbered 200 or less (there are only 30 players with autos in the set)

If anyone has any of these parallels, I will gladly get you what you need in a trade.

I have picked up 9 more parallels from this 2021 Topps Japan Edition set since I last posted here so now have a total of 93 parallels in this 220-player set.

Got 4 more Cherry Blossoms (#/99) bringing my total number of Cherry Blossoms to 33. Was really happy to get a Rafael Devers which I have been chasing since this set was released.

Also added 1 purple (#'d to 50), so now have 25 Purples; 2 golds (#'d to 25), now have 7 Golds; and 2 more Jade Green, including Luis Robert, so now have 32 Jade Greens.

Looking forward to passing 100 parallels from this set soon!

I keep on adding to my Japan Edition parallels collection. In the past few weeks, I have added 12 more parallels and now have 105 parallels (all numbered under 100) in this set.

I have added 7 more Cherry Blossom parallels (numbered to 99) so now have Cherry Blossoms of 40 different players in this 220-card base set,

Best new one being this guy:

Having fun hunting these. If anyone comes across any, let me know!
