Card Of The Week September 2

Yesterday, Hisashi Iwakuma of the Mariners outpitched Jared Weaver of the Angels, throwing 7 1/3 shutout innings in route to a 2-1 victory, his fourth in a row.

Here's his 2006 Lotte sticker/card (#11):

These Lotte sticker/cards were kind of odd.  The front of the card is actually 15 individual stickers.  The backs have biographical information along with what may be some sort of baseball game.  The cards were issued one per pack with a piece of gum.  This was Lotte's first set of cards since 1990 and their last to date (not including the 2006-08 Lotte Bikkuriman stickers that featured caricatures of players).
