Ichiro Suzuki and his top 3 rookie cards

For some of the best sports card auctions currently listed ending today, check out our Daily Auctions page, which is updated frequently!

What an amazing career by the original Japanese sensation Ichiro Suzuki who collected more than 3,000 hits during his MLB career (after nine seasons playing in Japan!)

Ichiro announced his retirement after playing his last two games with the Seattle Mariners in his home country.

To acknowledge the surefire Hall of Famer (in 2025), we list the Suzuki rookie cards in our opinion for collectors to collect.

1. 2001 Ultimate Collection Autograph Rookie Card #120

Numbered to only 250, it’s the only Suzuki rookie card that’s signed on-card.

On the market, it’s the most valuable going for thousands of dollars.


2. 2001 SPx Autograph Patch Rookie Card #150

It may not be serial numbered like most valuable autograph rookie cards, but it’s one of a very few autograph rookie cards available.

Plus it’s got a jersey patch on the card as well on the respected SPx brand.

Expect to pay a couple of thousand dollars for well-graded cards.

3. 2001 Bowman Chrome #351 (English and Japanese versions)

While it’s not autographed as many young superstar players have nowadays in the Bowman Chrome set, the refractor cards are a nice one to add to the personal collection.

Plus there are two different versions of the cards with the backs of one card printed in English, and the other half printed in Japanese.

This Suzuki card is also much more affordable than the top 2 picks.
