Jim Thome card #163 1999 UD Choice #79

  • Great shot here of Jim on his follow through, with the catcher's hand grasping at air.  Looks like a deep drive to left field for me!
  • Bio on the back:  "He had the second highest slugging percentage (.584) on the team last season and in the process raised his career mark to .548, which stood as the third-highest in Indians history through the '98 campaign."  Who was ahead of Jim in slugging pct?  Manny Ramirez of course.  Manny's SPCT was .599 for the season, 45 homers will help that number out always.
  • Price check:  80 cents for this card is way overpriced.  I don't care if it's a star card, 80 cents for a single out of a 99 cent  pack is a little crazy if you ask me.
