    2019 Leaf Ultimate Sports wrong Matsui?

    Saw this Ichiro / Matsui / Ohtani 1/1 triple auto from this years Leaf ultimate sports release.

    The scan is a little fuzzy but the pic they used for Matsui looks like Kazuo Matsui. Not Hideki Matsui.

    Reminded me of the bat barrel from a few years back where they got the Matsui's mixed up.

    That looks like the same picture used in the card. Good investigative work!

    I watched Kaz in Houston for several years. I can say with total confidence that is Kaz Matsui.

    Found the old Beckett article regarding the Matsui bat barrel mix-up of 2009.

    Rather have a wrong pic with right signature than vice versa, but it sucks either way.
    Looking for 2011 Topps Marquee Museum autographs, rare Frank Thomases, and any Grady Sizemores I don't have
