Jim Thome card #152 1996 Fleer Ultra On-Base Leaders #10

  • Another Black Friday COMC acquisition.  I did manage to fill a few holes with the last order, which included this card.
  • I really like the idea for the background, all the bases representing Jim's great OBP for the '95 season (.438).  Jim would go on to have a better year in '96 getting on base 45% of the time.
  • Speaking of walks and on base percentage, Jim's highest # of walks vs. any pitcher was 16 for his career.   That would be Tim Belcher who provided all those free passes, which might explain the 0 HR's and only 1 RBI career #'s for Thome vs. Belcher.
