2000 Calbee Ichiro Suzuki #15

I picked up this Japanese card a few months ago just for the curiosity factor - I've seen some affection shown by other card bloggers for Ichiro and considering he started his pro career in Japan, he's really been one of the unique foreign born players to make a MLB impact in the past 15-20 years.

It would be nice to see Ichiro still putting up the numbers, though guy is 42-years old and his MLB playing career is on its death knell - however, he should be good to get his 3,000th hit sometime in 2016 and that eventual accomplishment will be a testament of his metronomic consistency as professional hitter.
