Card of the Day: 2008 Topps Kazuo Uzuki RC
With early buzz surrounding the the Boston Red Sox card from 2008 Topps, card FS1 is also creating a bit of its own buzz.
The card is of Japanses high school pehnom Kazuo Uzuki, or The Uzi.
Uzuki is most known for his work at the WBC tryouts in 2006 when he was 14 years old. He was the youngest player invited and struck out 17 batters in seven innings during an intrasquad game.
He also plans to jump straight from high school to MLB in 2009 which would be the first time in history that has happened.
Early sales on eBay on Uzuki have been around $10-$15.
