Jim Thome card #215 2000 Topps Finest #9

  • The right side of the card reminds me of the old analog TV's when the signal wasn't quite perfect and you had lines running through people's faces.  
  • Chief Wahoo's teeth scanned dark again.  I'd love to say something, but I just can't bring myself to do it...
  • Bio on the back:  "Thome was at it again in 1999, hitting four home runs in his five postseason games.  He now counts 16 bombs--2 of them grand slams--among his 40 career playoff hits."  40% of his hits were HR's?  Had to find out what his career total was.  17 HR's out of 49 career playoff hits is just under 35%.  Wonder if there's anyone with a better ratio in MLB history?
