This would look totally sweet in our girls’ room but Eliza says no.
A custom McFarlane figure (hope it looks better in person than this bad Photoshop job)…
I dig this ’82 Topps knockoff…
And one more illustration…
Usually these giveaways are heavily promoted online and during game broadcasts in the weeks prior to such events, but I didn’t see anything… Maybe because there was no outside sponsor?
In any case, I got mine (seen in the photos above). The real Ichiro seems far more flexible.
From the listing…
This is a beautiful stamp souvenir sheet, issued by Guinea-Bissau in 2011, honoring Japanese baseball stars. Featured famous athletes shown include World Baseball Classic gold medal award-winning pitcher Koji Uehara, Major League Baseball (MLB) pitcher Yoshinori Tateyama, Golden Glove Award-winning player Ichiro Suzuki, and World Series Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award-winning All-Star champion Hideki Matsui. The sheet is Post Office fresh, mint never hinged, and F/VF.
Pristine, new, unused Japanese telephone card of Ichiro when he was playing for the Orix BlueWave pro baseball team in Japan’s Pacific League. So, if you go to Japan, and there are still any pay phones around, it’ll work. Then again the value of this telephone card drops like a stone so up to you.
Our man shares the cover with Dustin Ackley and Felix Hernandez, and the trio also appear on the fridge magnet schedules given away at Friday’s game. However, on this year’s media guide, Ichiro is replaced by Justin Smoak. Odd… For more, see my near-complete collections of Mariners scorecards and media guides.
But, in the interest of covering all things Ichiro, here’s what the 2012 giveaway looks like.
The game’s on 4/20, dude.
