Ichiro Suzuki burst on the big league scene in 2001 like no other player from the Japanese major leagues before, making one of the most profound immediate impacts by a player in his rookie season; Ichiro led the American League with 242 hits, a .350 batting average and 56 stolen bases. He was named to the first of 10 consecutive AL All-Star teams, won the Rookie of the Year and AL MVP Awards and his first of 10 consecutive Gold Glove Awards which is presented here. This glimmering and iconic 17? x 16? trophy displays a gold-painted Rawlings Major Gold Glove Series glove model PRO-701BF with ?The Gold Glove Co.? lettering in gold on an embroidered patch running along the back of the pinky finger mounted on a solid oak platform featuring a portrait etching of Ichiro wearing a Seattle Mariners cap embossed onto a metallic gold colored plate with a pair of gold painted Rawlings baseballs supported by golden tripods on either side adorned with the familiar red Rawlings logo under each ball above a descriptive nameplate reading ?2001 Rawlings Gold Glove Award Presented to Ichiro Suzuki Honoring His Selection As ?The Finest in the Field.?? It is not uncommon for an additional Gold Glove award to be made on behalf of the team or the player to be used as a display piece or gifted to a family member or agent. Award was originally acquired from a marketing representative. An Ichiro Suzuki award or trophy is the single rarest and most difficult find of any active ballplayer. Scanning all the databases tells us this is the very first and ONLY Ichiro Suzuki award or trophy to ever be offered for sale. This may be the only chance you ever have for an item like this from this future first ballot Hall of Famer.
