The 2008 Upper Series 2 Deck Kosuke Fukudome RC has been very popular since its release last week.  Today, Upper Deck annouced that there is even a harder version of this card to pull.  This rare SP is written in all Japanese.  According to Upper Deck, “Fukudome has a huge following in Japan and we felt it necessary to recognize that by creating this rare version which will likely be very popular in Asia,” said Jason Masherah, Upper Deck’s Baseball brand manager. “There has not been very much activity on them so far as many collectors may not fully realize what they have. Collectors lucky enough to pull one of these cards will have found a card that’s in high-demand with Japanese collectors in particular”.
