2014 Donruss Masahiro Tanaka Card Includes Japanese Variation

The Rated Rookie wrapper redemption packs for 2014 Donruss Baseball are showing up in collectors' mailboxes and it turns out there is a surprise variation. Masahiro Tanaka has both an English and a Japanese version.

By the front, the only difference between the two cards is Tanaka's name at the bottom of the card.

Things are a lot more obvious on the back:

Panini has not yet announced how rare the 2014 Donruss Masahiro Tanaka Japanese card is in relation to the regular version. However, if the first handful of listings on eBay is an indication, the variation is significantly rarer.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.
