Mizuno MP-29 Masters Edition...Anyone Seen These?

Friend that owns a rather large and successful golf shop gave me a heads up that he just took a 3-SW set (9 clubs) of Mizuno MP-29 Masters Edition in on trade.  Said they were only released in Japan, and that they have the Masters emblem on the back of the club head.

Anyone seen such a thing...or even heard of it?  My Googling abilities have been put to the test, and I could not come up with a single photo.

If they are indeed that rare...which would seem that they are...I may be picking them up just as a collector's item.  Thoughts?  Photos?  Anyone?

I cannot seem to edit the initial post, but I have a hypothetical for everyone.  If someone bought the aforementioned irons, and came home with a 3-SW (9 clubs) set of these with all matching serials and in near mint condition, what might be a fair price?  Also...what the heck are they specifically?  I do not think they are from the MP-29 line as they do not show any relief near the toe in the short irons.

Note the sweet white alignment sticks in the putter well.  Courtesy of this wonderful site.

That's for the alignment sticks, right?

Mizuno USA says they have no information other than it is a JDM "somewhat" limited edition iron based on a relationship with Augusta National.  Due to a language barrier, I have no idea how to get in touch with an English speaking member of the Mizuno Japan customer support team.

Anyone have anything they can add?

Maybe send a PM to this guy, he has a nice pic of an 8 iron in this post:

Somewhat concerned I may have been had by the golf shop. The issue is that I was looking for a playable set of irons when I bought these. Now it seems these have an incredible playability factor, but everyone I ask says I am a fool for taking them to a course instead of hanging them on the wall.

I have a set 3-9 plus three metals 1,3,5, and a bag with the Augusta and Masters logos.  All very successfully used. They were made and sold only in Japan circa 1989.
