Check Out Some Hyun-Jin Ryu Baseball Cards; Including My Own Card Creations

For the heck of it, I figured I'd spend a little bit of time checking out what Baseball cards exist of our newest potential overseas signing, Hyun-Jin Ryu.  Fortunately, I wasn't disappointed I looked.  There is an American card with Ryu on it from 2009.  It is from the 2009 Bowman Sterling set, and is a part of the WBC Relics inserts.  Check out the above gold refractor card with a piece of game-used uniform embedded within it.  From what I can tell, this is his only American Baseball card.

I also ran across a Ryu card from Korea.  Via a blog called Japanese Baseball Cards is a 2010 Korean Baseball card set featuring 64 cards; including Ryu.  See it below.

From the here, the well had run dry.  So, I decided to make a few of my own.  Check out some of my Hyun-Jin Ryu Baseball card creations.

Below is a Ryu card I made in the style of a gaming card.

Since Ryu was born in 1987 I figured I should use the Topps set design from that year and make the below card.

Here's a 1959 Topps Hyun-Jin Ryu card in his Hanwha Eagles Korean team uniform.

Okay, I admit it. I went a little crazy this weekend. Here's a pic showing him celebrating after shutting out Canada in a preliminary match at the Beijing Olympics.

Then look what I found.  A Ryu Street Fighter card.
