He was a four time All Star - three times in NPB (2000-02) and one time in MLB (2007). He was a five time champion - four Nippon Series championships (2000, 2002, 2006 and 2014) and one World Series championship (2007). I believe he has the only five time winner of any player who has won championships in both NPB and MLB.
His first baseball card was #483 from the 1994 BBM set. His first Calbee card was not until the 1997 set (#222).
