Jim Thome card #196 1995 Upper Deck Electric Diamond #96

  • No contest, I prefer the Electric Ice parallels to the Electric Diamond.  I loved how UD incorporated the Electric Ice wording on the cards, more so than the small home plate for the baseball parallels.
  • The demand for the hockey version seems to be apparent in the pricing in Beckett.  94-95 UD hockey Electric Ice still holding at a 10 to 20x multiplier.   Baseball nowhere near that.
  • Picked this card up recently on COMC very cheaply, 69 cents to be exact.  I know that hockey versions of Sakic EI cards from 95-96 are close to $2 for the base card, while the subset card can be had for a buck.
