These five make it a total of 68 different Ichiro Suzuki's in my Japanese athlete binder. The 2008 Topps card is one of my personal favorites because of the design and photo selection. He also included a nice 1966 Topps card of the Kansas City Athletics' pitcher... Don Mossi.

The package included these 23 cards for my Japanese athlete binder:
Thanks Jim and T.J! You know the routine. I'll dig up some stuff for your collections and have them in the mail in the near future.
Happy Friday and sayonara!
