Jim Thome card #85 1996 Stadium Club # 191

  • I had to look to see if this was some kind of parallel card, because you don't' see blue lettering on a normal base card.  Sure enough, it isn't a parallel.  
  • Bio on the back:  This is interesting, Topps created a stat called the TSC rating.  Essentially, it is how many at bats a player needs to create a run.  The formula is AB/(RBI+Runs-HR).  Jim's TSC rating for 1995 was 3.23.
  • Career home run #85 was hit 8/27/96, Jim's 26th birthday.  It was hit off of Detroit's Justin Thompson, and would break a 2-2 tie on the way to a 12-2 rout.  Jim would hit a HR in each game of the series, which the Indians swept.
