Jim Thome card #120 1998 Finest #118

  • 3 straight days of Finest cards on the blog is sort of a happy accident.  The scan almost makes it look like Jim is under water while swinging the bat.
  • Is it me, or does the first baseman's glove at the bottom of the card look like it's a lefty glove?  Jim throws right handed.  Maybe I'm just looking at it wrong?
  • Bio on the back:  The card mentions that Jim was 4th in the AL in homers with 40 in 1997.  This season, 40 would have tied him for 6th with Todd Frazier of the White Sox.   Frazier hit 40 this year?  Really?
