Autographs and Memorabilia Cards

Reaching beyond USA Baseball and into the international baseball scene are Chinese Taipei Signatures, Japanese Collegiate All-Stars Signatures. Both of these are hobby-exclusive autograph memorabilia cards that have Prime, Button and Laundry Tag parallels.
The Chinese Taipei National Team and Japanese Collegiate All-Stars are also part of the Silhouettes Signatures set.
