Jim Thome card #214 2000 Upper Deck Victory #157

  • Something good just happened.  Haven't seen any celebration photos on Thome cards until now.  Can't say for sure but I'd take a guess that it was from the '99 post season.
  • Bio on the back:  "...Thome now ranks 7th in club history with 196 home runs."  Thome would finish with 337 HRs as an Indian, tops all time, 95 ahead of 2nd place Albert Belle.  Thome is also first in Indians history with 14.0 AB/HR
  • Career homer #214 was hit off of Detroit's Willie Blair, 6/18/2000.  It was a solo shot in the 6th to get the Indians on the board.  The Indians would score 3 in the 7th and 5 in the 8th to run away to a 9-4 win.
