Jim Thome card #132 1998 E-X 2001 Cheap Seat Treats #12

  • I don't know whether to praise this card for being so inventive or to pan it for being so damn difficult to store.  Let's just say it's not my favorite card in the Jim Thome collection.
  • Bio on the back:  "First base seemed to agree with this Cleveland clout machine."  It goes on to say that his HR:AB ratio was 1:12.4.  600 AB's, close to 50 HR's, I'd take that every year...
  • Jim finished the 1997 season hitting his last 4 homers off the White Sox, including 2 off of Doug Drabek.  Career HR #132 was hit 9/12/97, broke a scoreless tie and propelled the Indians to a 9-0 whitewash.
