This is the Ippei Mizuhara baseball card

Ippei Mizuhara is all over the news because of his involvement in the Shohei Ohtani sports betting scandal. (If you hadn’t also heard, you might have inadvertently been apart of the scandal if you sell cards online.)

Ippei Mizuhara, Shohei Ohtani’s translator, holding his 3 rookie baseball cards, custom created in 2018 by Gubie for a skit.

But did you know he’s also got a few baseball cards? Per this Reddit comment, these cards were made back in 2018 as part of a Gubie skit (see video below).

Since then, and especially since the Ippei / Shohei scandal began, you can find more Ippei Mizuhara custom cards on eBay.
