Each sealed Hobby box contained a three-card pack from a special 51-card Ichiro set commemorating his ROY & MVP campaign. With the exception of card #51 which is a checklist, since all cards are of the same player, for brevity's sake we are not including a checklist.

Cards are also available in the following parallels.

  • Gold (serial-numbered to 100 copies)
  • Platinum (serial-numbered to 25 copies)

Ichiro Rookie Buybacks

Randomly inserted into Rookie Update packs, are 50 Ichiro rookie cards from four previously released Upper Deck products. In addition to the serial-numbering that was on the original card, each card is hand-numbered to 50 copies. The number purchased by Upper Deck is as follows.

Each card was inserted into packs in a penny sleeve with an accompanying Upper Deck Authenticated Certificate of Authenticity.

NOTE: The 2001 UD Reserve product contained a thirty-card "Prospects" subset, with each Prospect serial-numbered to 2500 copies. The 27 UD Reserve Ichiro cards used for this promotion were from this subset, however, are NOT serial-numbered. It is believed that, rather than buying back cards, UD took excess cards used for replacements. These cards were hand-numbered to 50 -- just not machine-numbered to 2500. Any collector who pulled one of the 27 UD Reserve "Buybacks" could send it back to Upper Deck and receive a properly numbered card.
