Former Yankee Ichiro Honored By Topps For 3000th Hit

Ichiro-3000-2He may have posted only slightly more than 10% of his hits with the Yankees, but Ichiro Suzuki‘s run in pinstripes was mostly a success.

The all-time combined Japanese and MLB hit king was a fan favorite in his two-plus years in the Bronx, and more than a few Yankee fans likely followed his chase for 3,000 hits in earnest.

When he reached that goal with the best of hits—a triple—yesterday, Topps honored the career .312 hitter with a TOPPS NOW card to commemorate the event.

Cards will only be available to order for 24 hours from Topps.com and then ship to fans within 3-5 business days. TOPPS NOW was launched at the start of the MLB season and has been a tremendous hit among fans with hundreds of thousands of cards ordered to date.
