I have been away from this blog for a while as I have worked on KBO charity stuff at www.teamjokbal.com, but a tweet from Dave at Japanese Baseball Cards about a contest from Waiting 'til Next Year got me back into this blog. Without further adieu, here is my favorite KBO card of 2017.
This card is part of a 5 card set produced by the Samsung Lions and was given out to fans in honor of the retiring Lee Seung-yeop. The cards are not numbered, but they do have a number on the back that coincided with a drawing to win special Lee Seung-yeop items. This card was given out at a game I attended on 09/16/2017 and was the 1st of the 5 cards.
It commemorates the 3 run home run that Lee hit for the Lions to tie game six of the 2002 Korean Series against the LG Twins. The next batter Ma Hae-young hit a solo home run to win the game (10-9) and give the Lions their 2nd Korean Series Championship.
