Jim Thome card #117 1998 Fleer Ultra #126

  • Back posting tonight.  I was so engrossed in the Jays game last night that by the time it ended (1130) I was too tired to post.  I'll have to make up for it sometime this month.
  • Starting the '98s with Fleer Ultra.  Design?  Not bad, I got used to seeing the player's name written in script over the years that it became the norm.  Besides, the red script matches Jim's socks.
  • Bio on the back:  there wasn't a bio on the back of this card, but there was one stat that Fleer added that caught my eye, AB/HR.  Jim hit a homer every 12.4 ABs during the '97 season, or if you assume that he has 3.1 ABs per game, Jim's hitting a homer every 4 days.  Not too shabby if you ask me.
