Ichiro - 9 consecutive 200 hits seasons

The Japan post issued a press release on Tuesday to announce a special premium stamp set featuring Ichiro Suzuki and his accomplishment of 9 consecutive 200-hit seasons.  Post offices Nationwide will be accepting pre-orders of the stamp beginning tomorrow until October 30th.  The stamps will be shipped out sometime at the end of November.

Each stamp set sheet includes 10 sticker-type 80yen stamps, 1 premium holder, and 9 post cards. The stamp set will cost 3,980yen.

Buyers of the set will also be included in a special drawing (51 possible winners) for a slice of a bat Ichiro used in a game (not the bat with which he set the record).
