Jim Thome card #216 2000 SPx #42

  • I like the gold on this card.  The varying shades and tones of gold weren't done any justice on the scan.  It looks, and shines much better in hand.
  • I've said it before on this blog, but the eye black that Jim wears really enhances his cards for me.  It's the old fashioned grease stick rather than the new stickers that players wear.  No worries about getting dirty when Jim goes to work.
  • This card represents post #600 on this blog.  This is also post #33 for July '17, and I'm pretty sure I'll hit 40 posts this month.  I love the quick posts on my PC cards, and I think this blog has helped keep my interest in building them up.
