Series MVP Hideki Matsui


Lost in all the fuss about Hideki Matsui being the first Japanese player to win the World Series MVP is that fact that he is the first player to ever be the MVP in both the MLB World Series and the NPB Nippon Series, which he won in 2000 for the Giants. The card above commemorates that award in the 2000 BBM Nippon Series set (#S60).
