Jim Thome card #71 1996 Fleer Tiffany #102

  • Amazing how the scan gives the foil writing at the bottom a bluish hue.  It's actually silver, but you couldn't tell from this picture.
  • The only copy of this card currently on COMC is selling for $2.75.  I consider Jim an unlisted star in the price guide, so this card currently lists for $7.50 (IMO).
  • July 6, 1996 was the date that Jim hit his 71st career home run, a solo shot off of the White Sox' Kevin Tapani.  It gave the Tribe a 1-0 lead, but the Indians wound up losing 3-2.  That same night, the Jays hit 6 HRs in a 15-0 drubbing of the Tigers.
