Ichiro card #17 2003 Upper Deck Masters with the Leather #L9

  • Nice looking card, it's good to see something that honors a part of Ichiro's game that often was overlooked, his defense.
  • Bio on the back:  Ichiro made only 1 error during his rookie season, winning a gold glove.  That would be the first of 10 consecutive gold glove awards.  
  • Quite the common card:  33 copies of this card currently on COMC.  Cheapest is 45 cents.  Most expensive is $4.  I would think somewhere in the middle is about right.
  • Career game #17 see Ichiro's hit streak extended to 15 games with a 2 for 5 performance.  During the streak he's hitting .400, the M's are 12-3 and had an OPS of .989.  7 of those games were also multi hit games.

  1. Not sure how well the name of this insert set rolls off the tongue, but definitely a cool design.
