First Daisuke Matsuzaka Rookie Card

Auto Date Friday, April 6th, 2007

The just released Topps Moments & Milestones Baseball contains the first Major League Rookie Card of Boston Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka. 

Dice-K, as he known to fans, was signed by the Red Sox in the offseason after paying over $50 million justfor the rights to negotiate with the Seibu Lions of the Japanse professional baseball league.  After a difficult negotiation, Matsuzaka signed a six year, $52 million contract.

In his regular season debut today, Dice-K led the BoSox to a 4-1 victory by pitched 7 Innings and giving up only 1 run.  Dice-K lived up to his nickname by striking out 10.

Matsuzaka has three different cards in the Topps Moments & Milestones Baseball and each is numbered to 150.  Each card also has a black parallel (#’d to 29) and red parallel (1 of 1).
