I responded 'yes' because I used to collect them from 1997-1999 while I lived in Japan.

I managed to complete the first set, but a box with my most important cards was lost in shipping when I returned to Canada.

It was a lot of fun opening all those packets hoping to find the missing cards in my collection at the time. I found the last few I was missing in some local card collector shops.

I still have a few unopened packets from that first series in 1997.

I clicked no, but I used to have a reasonable amount of cards (may still do, somewhere) from the '90s, from my time living in Japan.

I only recently began collecting the cards--was not even aware they existed prior to 2017 when i found a set (2017 series 2) on ebay and purchased it. I was hooked and began trying to collect other cards of my favorites since i began following the sport in the late 90's (Asashoryu, Hakuho, Kaio, Musashimaru, Akebono and Harumafuji) and before long began to try to find sets to purchase as I had caught the bug. Eventually I decided I would try to collect every Modern set of Sumo Cards released by BBM since their debut in 1997.  Sets before 2011 were virtually impossible to find already assembled, so I started to piece them together with the help of Sumo Soul and the members of the BBM Sumo Cards Collectors Facebook group. Just last week I completed my last two sets--the 2004 (Hakuho's debut) and the tough 2005 sets with the gracious help of my good friend Paul Fogarty.  If anyone would like a look at my collection, it is here: https://imageevent.com/supplex55/supplex55bbmsumocardcollection1997

I wish I had some. Been thinking about collecting for a while now, just haven’t pulled the trigger.

Well, I originally voted no. However, I’ve just jumped in and bought some 2020 cards. Now I just have to wait patiently for the mail.
