“Shoulda Been” 2013 Heritage #2: Ichiro Suzuki

Ichiro is missing from 2013 Topps products, and if there’s been any explanation for that beyond the obvious, I haven’t seen it.

It doesn’t seem right that Ichiro doesn’t have a Topps card, so here’s a custom Heritage card:

2013 Schmeritage Ichiro Suzuki

Since Ichiro, or someone representing him, doesn’t want to play nice with collectors, I’m not going to play nice with Ichiro; I created this custom using his last name. So there, Mr. Suzuki. Nanny nanny boo boo.

I have an outstanding request (or really two requests) for more “Shoulda Been” Heritage cards, and I’ll get to those as soon as I have time to make them.

Meanwhile, if there’s someone who you think should have a Topps card and doesn’t, leave a comment and I’ll try my best to rectify the situation.

  1. I’ve always felt that Ichiro cards should have his last name on them. I’m not a fan of simply putting “Ichiro” on the fronts, as Topps and other companies have done for the last decade.

    Love the Heritage card!

    • I’m guessing that it’s not up to the card companies, that any licensee is told to refer to him simply as Ichiro. After all, that’s what’s on the back of his jersey… or was, before he went to the Yankees, who don’t do the name-on-back thing. Ultimately, it probably comes from Ichiro himself.

      Glad you like the custom!
