Card Of The Week October 10

So last Tuesday, Matt Murton of the Hanshin Tigers broke Ichiro Suzuki's 16 year old record for most hits in a season. Pretty impressive for a guy who's main claim to fame before this season was accompanying Nomar Garciaparra from the Red Sox to the Cubs in that famous mid-season trade in 2004.

Here's Murton's card from this year's BBM All Star set (#A31):

Oh, yeah, and Deanna was at the game.

In my heart I believe that Ichiro still holds the record. He set the record in a 130 games compared to a 144 game season. I still tip my cap to Matt Murton though. 200+ hits in a season is very impressive....especially in Japanese baseball.
