Card Of The Week July 3

Last Sunday Hotaka Yamakawa of the Lions hit the 200th home run of his career.  The milestone came in his 697th game, the fewest games ever by a Japanese player.  Here are Calbee cards celebrating Yamakawa getting to home runs number 100 and 150 on May 12th, 2019 and September 12th, 2020 respectively:

2019 Calbee ES-01

2021 Calbee #ES-03

It would not surprise me at all for there to be a card in Calbee's Series Three set this year for Yamakawa reaching 200 home runs.

That top card with the mascot is really cool. Congratulations to Mr. Yamakawa!
