Jim Thome card #123 1998 Bowman #56

  • '98 Bowman, a solid effort.  Got everything you would want in a card.  Great shot, team logo, facsimile signature (I've always liked those) and a border that doesn't overrun the card.
  • Stats on the back:  No bio on Bowman, just stats versus every team.  Jim rang up the White Sox to the tune of a .326 average, 8 HR and 18 RBI.  The only two teams in '97 that Jim didn't hit a HR off in the AL were the Angels and Orioles.
  • '98 Bowman=441 card set.  Lists in Beckett magazine for $50, while the Thome card is at just 75 cents.  Jimmy Rollins and Magglio Ordonez are the biggest RC's in the set, listing for $5 each.
