Jim Thome card #94 1997 Leaf #223

  • Love the photo on this card.  It reminds me that Thome was a home run hitter and that swing produced 612 of them.  The logo is not overbearing and his name is easy to read.  All good things.
  • Career homer #94 for Jim was his first of the 1997 season, a solo shot off of Oakland's Buddy Groom.  The opening day blast extended the lead for the Indians to 9-7, which is how the game would end.
  • Also, congratulations go out to Jim for getting a plaque added to the Phillies Wall of Fame today.
