Jim Thome card #77 1996 Topps Gallery #70

  • I'm making it a point to check the Trading Card Database to see if the cards I'm showing have photos on the site.  If they don't, I'll be adding them, as I did with this card.
  • I remembered Topps Gallery from around 2000; I never thought that they had any sets as early as '96.  I like this card because there's nothing fancy about it.  It's Jim, his name, the Gallery logo, and "The Classics" at the top.  
  • '96 Gallery was a 180 card release, and lists for $40.  There is one parallel, the players private issue, which carries a 5-12X multiplier.  I found 2 copies on COMC, ranging from $6.25-$10.25.  Looks like I'll be holding off on these for a while.
