About Masahiro Tanaka Autographed Memorabilia & Collectibles
Masahiro Tanaka is the latest of Asian born players that have created a bidding war amongst MLB teams to sign them to a contract in the United States. What has recently been seen with stars Daisuke Matsuzaka and Yu Darvish was seen with the Japanese pitcher Tanaka in the offseason following 2013. After being the subject of scouts from many Major League teams, Tanaka signed to play his baseball with the New York Yankees. Tanaka’s deal is valued at $155 million and the 25 year old seems to be worth every penny. Tanaka has taken the 2014 baseball season by storm, leading the majors with a league leading 11 wins and posting a spectacular 2.11 earned run average (as of June 24, 2014).
Often times, players who sign enormous contracts from overseas don’t live up to the hype. However, Masahiro Tanaka is on his way to becoming the face of MLB pitching for many years to come. The demand for Tanaka signed memorabilia has shot through the roof since the pitcher’s incredible start to the season and the value of his merchandise increases with every batter he retires. Our site features some of the rarest Tanaka merchandise available on the market. Take home a Masahiro Tanaka signed baseball with either his English or Japanese signature or indulge in an authentic Tanaka signed jersey. The Japanese pitcher is getting ready to explode on the scene of Major League Baseball so be sure to take advantage of our memorabilia pieces before it’s too late.
Tanaka has cracked the top five amongst MLB pitchers in wins, ERA, and strikeouts midway through the 2014 season. The Japanese superstar is on his way to becoming one of the best pitchers to ever come across seas and play in the MLB.
