Ryota Igarashi Of The New York Mets

Little late as usual on this, but former Swallows pitcher Ryota Igarashi has signed a two year deal with the Mets. Igarashi's rookie card is #289 in the 1998 BBM set. I think his first Calbee card isn't until the 2001 set (#023)2000 set (#184), but I could be wrong. He's in the BBM All Star sets from 2000 and 2002-05 and the Nippon Series set from 2001. For Upper Deck, he's in the 2000 Ovation Rising Stars insert set and the 2001 Victory and Upper Deck sets. As always, this is not a comprehensive list, just a couple highlights.

Some cards:






From top to bottom: 1999 Future Bee #017, 2001 Upper Deck #83, 2001 BBM Nippon Series #S10, 2005 BBM Swallows #S41, and 2009 BBM 1st Version #375.
