New Season, New Header


Today marks the third anniversary of this here blog, so I thought I’d freshen it up a bit with this new header. The old one only showed Ichiro’s Mariner cards, but this new one also includes the other teams he’s played for during his pro career — Nippon Professional Baseball’s Orix BlueWave, Major League Baseball’s New York Yankees, and his World Baseball Classic squad, Team Japan.

Below is the old header, shown here for posterity.


Thanks Eliza!

Fake Ichiro Card #16

ichiro131021Topps didn’t issue any 2013 Ichiro baseball cards, which sucks. I’m guessing that, for whatever reason, Ichiro didn’t sign a contract with Topps, but who knows? There’s some speculation here.

ShlabotnikReport righted this wrong by creating this faux ’13 Topps Heritage replica card. Meanwhile, an eBay search for “Ichiro Topps 2013” mostly turns up these stupid fucking things.
