Glenn Kardy grew up in the Bay Area, watching the Oakland A’s. He’s still a sports freak, but he now roots from Japan, where he’s involved in making basketball cards.
Japanese fans love their sports cards and memorabilia too. Baseball is king, but basketball is catching on.
One of the top leagues in the country includes some former American players and now an expatriate American working in the country is helping bring the game to fans with his work on a new set of trading cards.
The Japan Times says Glenn Kardy is helping market one local team to kids through his company’s involvement in cards and other memorabilia.
