Upper Deck has released their first rookie card of Dice-K in 2007 Upper Deck Premier - numbered out of 49, 99, and 199. Depending on how low it's numbered they're currently selling (Early May 2007) for $150 to $300. It looks like this:

Dick-K Rookie Card Upper Deck Premier 2007

Daisuke Matsuzaka's first true rookie card has appeared in 2007 Topps Milestones. There are a few different versions of the rookie that we've seen so far from this set on ebay. Card numbers are 170, 171, 172. Looks like they're either numbered out of /150 or a more limited /29 with a darker background. One of the card numbered out of 29 has already sold for $1,000.

Here's an inexpensive Dice-K rookie. This can be found in a Topps retail 14 card Boston Team set. You can pick these up for just a few bucks.

 

He also has several cards from Japan and a nice selection of recent cards from his pitching in the World Baseball Classic where he went 3-0 with a 1.38 ERA. Oh yeah, he also was MVP of the tournament!

Matsuzaka is reported to have a strange looking pitch called the gyroball. This pitch supposedly has a rotation like a football spiral and then dive-bombs when it reaches the plate. Some people think the pitch is just a hard slider, either way it will be worth watching for.

Here are some of the cards Dice-K currently has available. We've placed a link to some of the various auctions (not ours) that have recently ended on ebay for each of these cards below.
