Card Of The Week February 23

After spending a couple of weeks in camp coaching with the Yomiuri Giants, Hideki Matsui headed for the US last week to spend some time coaching for the Yankees in their spring training.  So he's leaving my least favorite NPB team to work with my least favorite MLB team.  But regardless, I thought that was a good enough excuse to show case this Matsui card this week:

This card was given away at several Giants games at the Tokyo Dome the first part of last May.  That included the game that was preceded by the "People's Honor Award" ceremony for Matsui and Shigeo Nagashima which explains the back of the card:
