Koji Uehara of the Baltimore Orioles

Koji Uehara, formerly of the Yomiuri Giants, this week finalized a 2-year deal with the Baltimore Orioles. His BBM rookie card was in the 1999 set (#329). He had a couple rookie cards in the 1999 Calbee set - #091, #163, and #252. He appears in the BBM All Star sets from 1999-2005 and 2007, the BBM Nippon Series sets for 2000, 2002 and 2008, and the BBM National Team sets from 2003 and 2008. He is in the 2000 Ovation and Victory sets and the 2001 Upper Deck set, but oddly enough not the 2001 Victory set (For whatever reason, Upper Deck chose Darrell May instead for the Strike King subset). (As always, this is not a complete list, but some of the highlights.)

Here's some of his cards:

From top to bottom, that's his 1999 BBM Rookie card (#329), one of his 1999 Calbee rookie cards (#091), 2001 BBM (#34), 2003 Calbee Title Holder subset (#T-19), 2005 Prime 9 Special Team Edition (#PN05STE-039) and 2006 Upper Deck Inaugural Images (#II-17).
