First Lance Berkman and now it's my Ichiro collection takes a hit with Ichiro being traded to the Yankees today.  The Yankees have somehow figured out a way that I may root for them to win a championship with Ichiro on the roster.  To dull the pain, here's my Ichiro relic collection:

2002 Fleer Baseball's Best #51 Ichiro Base Relic
2009 Topps Allen and Ginter #AGR-IS Ichiro Jersey Relic
2009 Topps Allen and Ginter #AGR-IS2 Ichiro Bat Relic

2007 Bowman Sterling #BS-IS Ichiro Bat Relic
2002 Fleer Ichiro Base Relic

2008 Topps Allen and Ginter #AGr-IS Ichiro Jersey Relic
2008 Topps #HR-IS Ichiro Jersey

Nice collection. I felt the same way when I heard he was traded to the Yankees. Topps has probably already produced 100s of Yankee Ichiro cards already.

Are you going to collect those?

I feel for you :( Although value-wise your collection probably didn't take a hit with the trade

Yeah, I'll still collect the cards...it's not like he signed with the Yanks as a free agent.
