Jim Thome card #173 1999 Ovation #25

  • 2nd card of Thome in recent days where the card # matched his jersey number.  Very cool.
  • I've always loved the feel of the Ovation cards, the stitches made to feel like a baseball.  Again, very cool.
  • Career homer #173 came off of Brad Radke of the Twins, 6/29/99.  It was his first homer as a DH in '99 and tied the game at 3 in the 5th.  The Indians would score 2 in the 9th to emerge with a 5-4 win.
