Ichiro card #14 2002 Topps 206 #256

  • There are three versions of card #256 for Ichiro.  I currently own two of them.   
  • Bio on the back:  Ichiro won rookie of the month 4 times during the 2001 season (April, May, August and September).  I checked Baseball Reference, and they list him also with Rookie of the Month in June.  The two players to win Rookie of the month 4 times in a season since then?  Mike Trout and Aaron Judge.
  • Career game #14 was hit 2nd career 4 hit game; he went 4 for 4 against the Rangers with a triple.  He was also caught stealing twice by Ivan Rodriguez.  M's won 6-4.  Ichiro increases his hit streak to 12 games, hitting .404 over that period.
