Baseball Card of the Year: 2012 Topps Update #US272 Variation

This card’s photo by Otto Greule Jr. captures the most bittersweet moment I’ve ever experienced at the ballpark. It happened this past July 23, the day the Mariners traded Ichiro to the Yankees, just before his first plate appearance in a non-Seattle uniform. He was no longer a Mariner, as he had been for the previous 11-1/2 seasons, but his bow to the Safeco crowd spoke volumes about his respect for the Seattle fans. Thinking about it now, I still get a bit choked up.
