Jim Thome card #68 1996 Fleer #102

  • It appears that Jim finally had enough of fouling balls off of his shin, this is the first card I can remember that features a shin guard.
  • Fleer '96 has a papery feel to it.  For 2 years it appeared as if Fleer was trying to make cards as cheaply as they could.  Almost as if they knew that they needed to stockpile cash for when they lost their license.  
  • Career homer #68 came 6/15/96 against Mark Hutton and the Yankees.  It was a 2 run shot in the 9th inning of a 10-3 win.
