Jim Thome card #109 1997 Metal Universe #87

  • For all the issues I've had scanning cards with foil on them, this one didn't turn out as bad as I thought it would.  Still a bit hard to read Thome's name or the word "metal", but other than that the scan is ok.
  • Found a handful of copies of this card on ebay (didn't see any on COMC), all listed in the range of 99 cents to $1.50.  Seems about right...
  • Jim's 107th career homer was his 4th in 3 games, a solo shot off of Tom Gordon in Fenway Park, 6/6/1997.  The Indians won the game 7-3 behind 7 innings of 8 hit ball by Orel Hershiser, who won his 6th game of the season.
