KuboTen package received!

I made multiple purchases on KuboTen the last few weeks and had them shipped together. They arrived yesterday (super fast too, 2 days?) and here are the pictures.

All together I think I bought 93 cards and about 58 are different.. all Lee Seung-yeop cards. My plan is to submit these to PSA for a Master Set Registry. BBM, Calbee, Konami, and Yomiuri Giants. I don't believe I have any Owners League in this shipment. When I saw the large envelope I wondered what was inside. I didn't realize the folder was a folder, I thought it was a card so I was a little bummed but it's a cool piece to have.















Ryan, over at This Card Is Cool, is helping me acquire more Lee Seung-yeop cards, and I, helping him with Korean cards.

Lee Seung-yeop statue

I've been putting this off for some time but I finally purchased the Lee Seung-yeop statue that's been for sale for maybe two years now. I paid W59,000 won (~$54), a bit pricey, but that's what it costs. Initially I thought it was a bobblehead so I was surprised to realize it wasn't when I opened the box. It comes with a detachable stand. The likeness is one of the best I've seen in any statue/bobblehead. It's beautiful and well-detailed.
