Last Wednesday Ichiro Suzuki played in his 3018th game between NPB and MLB. This passed Katsuya Nomura's record for most games played in between NPB and MLB by a Japanese player. Of course, Nomura's were all in NPB - he's the only player in NPB with more than 3000 games played in. Here's Ichiro's 1998 Calbee "West Special" card (#W-47):
The "West Special" cards were a set or subset that Calbee did in 1998 that only contained cards of players on teams in the "western part of Japan" which in this case means west of Kanto - Nagoya (Dragons), the Osaka-area (Blue Wave, Buffaloes, Tigers), Hiroshima (Carp) and Fukuoka (Hawks). I don't know if these were sold separately from the regular cards that year (like the 1994 Calbee Hokkaido cards were) or if this was just a subset/insert set with the regular cards.
