Jim Thome card #151 1997 Bowman Chrome #71

  • Part of my Black Friday COMC was this card.  It reminds me of an old pinstripe suit.
  • Finally made it to post #400!!  At the current pace I'm going now, I have enough cards to post for another 2 years on this blog.  Of course that will grow as I add more cards to the PC's.
  • Career Home Run #151 for Jim was the first of 2 he hit on 6/19/98 vs. the Yankees.  It was a solo shot off of David Cone, and was part of a day that saw Jim get on base all 4 times (2 walks, 2 homers) as the Indians beat the Yankees 7-4.  The loss for Cone that day saw his record drop to 9-2, even with an ERA almost at 5.
