NPB Gear on Rakuten Ichiba - Available in US?
Hey guys, I'm in sort of a bind here. I was saving up to buy a Yu Darvish jersey in the near future and seemed to have found the place with yakyushop, but unfortunately that site closed down a few weeks ago.

I found this thread (http://japanesebaseball.com/forum/thread.gsp?forum=17&thread=62166) after a some Google searching, and Rakuten Ichiba looks like it has some replicas for a decent price. I can't tell if they ship to the US though, or how to complete an order since I don't speak any Japanese (Google Translate couldn't seem to handle the ordering part). I was hoping a few of you might be able to help me figure this out.

Also, a little background since I think this is my first post here: I live in CA, and have become increasingly interested in NPB and the other Asian leagues since the 2009 WBC. I attended the final in LA and it was quite an experience. My favorite players are Darvish and Shuichi Murata. I check in regularly at yakyubaka and Patrick Newman's NPB Tracker to try and keep up.

Anyway, if any of you guys can fill me in on how to get NPB gear from Rakuten Ichiba to the US, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!
About

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
