Jim Thome card #143 1998 Donruss Elite #137

  • The Christmas Crush is on.  Less than 2 weeks to go, and I'm going away for a couple of days during the holiday.  I'm going to have to find a way to put 25 posts together to get to the 400 plateau by years end.   I know, 3 lines per card, it shouldn't be hard, right?
  • This card's scan appears as if it's snowing.  Well, it is probably snowing in Cleveland right now.
  • Ugh.  Career home run #143 was the first of 4 straight home runs off my beloved Blue Jays.  This one was hit May 23rd, 1998 off of Roger Clemens, a shot down the left field line in Jacobs Field.  It tied the game at 1-1 in the 2nd inning, but Toronto would take over, scoring 2 runs in each of innings 4, 5 and 6 to win 7-2.
