Checklist Translations: 1997 ProCard CPBL Baseball Hall of Fame [UPDATED]

    The third and final set issued by ProCard to cover the 1996 season introduced the "chrome" effect to Taiwan.  This shiny 122-card set was released in September 1997, was sold boxes of 24 packs, 6 cards to a pack.  Pack retailed for 150 yuan, which was about $4.50 US.  If I understand what Jack Li says in his blog post about the set, it was a bit too expensive for the market and wasn't terribly popular at the time.  As a result, this can be a fairly tough set to complete.  Interestingly, both Korea and Taiwan have had sets fashioned after Topps Finest or Chrome, but I can't think of a single similar set from Japan.

    The checklist breaks down into five sections;

001-064 represent the "regular" cards (including some from the expansion ChinaTrust Whales); this group is broken down into pitchers (投手) from 001-020 and batters (打者) from 021-064.  After 064, the numbering drops the leading zero and pairs up the overall set card number with subset card numbers.

65/R1-89/R25 cover the rookies for the 1997 season

90/T1-100/T11 are "T.A. Leaders" for the top eleven "total average" leaders.  Total Average being a complicated algorithm I cannot decipher through Google Translate.

101/C1-110/C10 are "300 Club" dedicated to players who hit .300

111/M1-122/M12 is the "Masters" subset, two players per team.  This subset had a parallel with  "HYPER REFLECTIVE" on the back, which I'm assuming means these are effectively the "refractors".  These were serial numbered to 400.

For more a more thorough description, as well as some scans of each of the subsets, check here:

    Below is the checklist as I've managed to construct so far.  In some cases, the English names I'm using may not exactly match what is printed on the card.  Instead I use the names those players were most commonly known by in America.  As such, Epifano "Epy" Guerrero Jr. is always listed as Sandy Guerrero, Joseph Strong is always listed as Joe Strong, etc.  Possibly due to difficulty in coming up with an acceptable name in Chinese, Tony Metoyer was often listed as Tony Keith, using his middle name as his surname.  Major thanks to Frank Jett for supplying some images of the bottom of the box, which shows the checklist!
