Jim Thome card #197 1999 SPx #33

  • Another card that I had to turn the brightness settings up in order to get some of the design shown on the scan.  Foil proves to be a scanner's enemy more often than not.
  • Bio on the back:  "In '98, he put in his third straight 30-homer season, finishing tied for eighth on the club's career list, and raised his career slugging percentage to .540, third best in club history."  At least somebody found something different for Jim's accomplishments to write about.
  • Career homer #197 was Jim's first of the 2000 season, hit 4/5/00 off of Baltimore's Sidney Ponson.  It was a solo shot that extended the Indians lead in the game to 6-4.  Baltimore ended up turning the game around and scoring 4 in the eighth inning for an 11-7 win.
