The 2016 BBM Hokkaido Shohei Ohtani #137 card is a highly prized collectible, especially in its PRO 10 Gem Mint condition. Before joining the MLB, Shohei Ohtani made a name for himself in Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) with the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters. Ohtani’s time in the NPB was marked by his extraordinary ability to excel both as a pitcher and as a hitter, a rare dual threat in professional baseball. His achievements in Japan laid the foundation for his groundbreaking career in Major League Baseball.
This card, from the 2016 BBM series, captures Ohtani during these formative years with the Nippon-Ham Fighters. The PRO 10 Gem Mint rating indicates that the card is in virtually perfect condition, making it even more valuable to collectors. It’s a must-have for fans of Ohtani and collectors of international baseball memorabilia, offering a glimpse into the early career of a player who would go on to make baseball history.
