Imae was named to the Best 9 team in 2005 and won Golden Glove awards four times (2005-08). He was selected for the All Star team three times (2006, 2013, 2018). He played in for Team Japan in the 2006 World Baseball Classic.
I've always found it remarkable that the Marines won the Nippon Series twice while Imae was with them (2005 & 2010) and he was voted MVP both times.
His first baseball card was #326 in BBM's 2002 1st Version set. His first Calbee card was in the "Jump Up To The Star" subset in the 2003 set but his first "regular" Calbee card wasn't until #096 in the 2005 set. Here's a bunch of his cards:
