An Ichiro Suzuki signed baseball is an apt momento for his career, as Ichiro hit 4,367 of them for base hits in his combined play in the Japan majors and the United States majors. His 3,089 Major League hits are amazing, considering he first played nine seasons in Japan. He has 111 more hits than Pete Rose, counting his Japanese total. Playing in MLB mainly for the Seattle Mariners, Ichiro also has had stints with the New York Yankees and the Miami Marlins. He is now back with Seattle in a front office capacity, but is scheduled to be on the active roster for at least the Mariners' first two regular season games in 2019, against the Oakland Athletics in Japan. This way Ichiro may close out his playing career in his native Japan. But who knows? He may play even more. Signature is in black ball point pen. Single signed Upper Deck Authenticated baseball. Comes in original Upper Deck packaging. Ball is in pristine condition.
