1996 BBM top 10 hitters/pitchers
I came across some 1996 BBM cards that are titled Top 10 hitters selected by Isao Harimoto. I saw cards of Kiyohara, Nomura (Carp), and Etoh. Also I believe there exist a set of cards titled Top 10 pitchers selected by Inao (former Nishitetsu).

Any idea who the rest of the selections were?

Anything baseball card related I always refer to Rob Fitts (aka Ochiai-san) at Rob, are you lurking here?

I got this info from Gary Engel's "Japanese Baseball Card Checklist and Price Guide"

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
