Card Of The Week November 2

The 2014 Nippon Series wrapped up last Thursday with the Hawks beating the Tigers 1-0 in Game Five  to win the Series 4 games to 1.  While the 4 games to 1 total might make you think this was a very one-sided series, it actually was pretty exciting.  Games Two and Five were each decided by one run and Game Four went 10 innings before the Hawks won on a three run sayanora home run by Akira Nakamura.  The Series also featured one of the most unique endings ever as the Tsuyoshi Nishioka was called out for interference on a throw to first for the final out of Game Five.

I thought I'd feature cards of all the award winners for the Series (or at least the ones that BBM used to highlight in their Nippon Series sets):

Series MVP Seiichi Uchikawa (2001 Upper Deck #1)

"Fighting Spirit" Randy Messenger (2010 BBM 1st Version #121)

Outstanding Player Yuki Yanagita (2011 BBM Rookie Edition #002)

Outstanding Player Dennis Sarfate (2012 Front Runner Carp Starting Lineup #11)

Outstanding Player Shota Takeda (2013 BBM Hawks 75th Anniversary #91)
