Jim Thome card #114 1997 Pacific Crown Collection #80

  • There was one aspect of the post title I couldn't get wrong for this card.   The year.   It's written right on the front of the card.
  • With all the room there is in the dugout, I always wondered why players tucked their batting gloves in their back pocket when they went out to the field.  None the less, the gloves in pocket look works for this photo.
  • Bio on the back:  "Los 38 cuadrangulares conectados por Jim durante la pasada temorada, es la mayor cantidad conectada por cualquier jugador del cuadro de Cleveland desde 1953.  Yep, Pacific wrote the top of the bio in Spanish.  In case you don't want to go to Google translate, Jim hit the most homers for a Cleveland infielder since 1953, with 38.
