Jim Thome card #101 1997 Collectors Choice #94

  • This might be the only card I have of Jim that has a multiple position designation on the front.  I'll have to watch the cards in 1997 & 1998 to see if there are any others with the 3B-1B listing.
  • The '97 Collectors Choice cards featured the "Did you know?" on the back.   The DYK on Thome's card documents the fact that Larry Doby was the first African-American player to play in the AL, appearing 7/5/47 for the Indians.
  • For 99 cents, the Collectors Choice brand was not a bad choice for card lovers looking for an inexpensive rip.  I remember ripping a lot of these packs back in the day...
