Collecting the 1967 Kabaya-Leaf Set – An "American" Japanese Baseball Card Issue
The 1967 Kabaya-Leaf set used elements of 1959 and 1963 Topps cards to depict Japanese baseball stars of the day. These cards combine rarity, attractiveness and interesting players for a set unlike any other. SMR takes a look at this favorite Japanese baseball card set.

PSA Set Registry Starter Kit: Roger Staubach
Not everyone loves the Dallas Cowboys, but how could anyone not admire Captain Comeback? Roger Staubach is a Heisman Trophy winner, Super Bowl champion, Presidential Medal of Freedom awardee, Pro Football Hall of Famer and the subject of some fantastic cards. SMR takes a look at some of the quarterback’s killer cardboard.

Trading cards come in all shapes and sizes. Therefore, it makes sense that the most popular sport in the world is well-represented in the hobby, even if many collectors have yet to catch on. SMR talks to one collector who gets a kick out of soccer cards!
