Jim Thome card #91 1997 Bomwan's Best #22

  • Bio on the back:  Set franchise record with 123 walks.  He broke that record in 1999 with 127 walks.  That record still stands.
  • Talk about a loaded lineup.  In '97, the Indians had as regular players Jim Thome, Sandy Alomar Jr (C), Tony Fernandez (2b), Omar Vizquel (SS), Matt Williams (3b), Manny Ramirez, Marquis Grissom and Brian Giles (of) and David Justice (DH).  They lost the World Series that year in 7 games to the Marlins.
  • '97 Bowman's Best was a 200 card set that lists currently for $40.  The Halladay and Beltre RC's still lead the way ($10 and $5 respectively) while a lot of the big name star cards list for anywhere from 1-3 bucks.
