Yoshinori Tateyama of the Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers today signed pitcher Yoshinori Tateyama, formerly of the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters. Tateyama's BBM rookie card is #432 from the 1999 set. He's also card #10 in the Ovation Rising Stars serially numbered insert set from 2000, his only appearance in an Upper Deck set. As usual, I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think he's had any Calbee cards.

He appears in many but not all of the BBM 1st and 2nd Version sets since 2002. He only appeared in one All Star set (in 2000) and appears in three Nippon Series sets (2006, 2007 and 2009). As always, this is not meant to be a comprehensive list, merely some highlights.

Some sample cards:

From top to bottom, 2001 BBM #195, 2000 BBM All Stars #A56, 2006 BBM Nippon Series #S06 and 2005 BBM 1st Version #521 (Leader subset).
