Jim Thome card #178 1999 Upper Deck Retro #25

  • I thought it was more recent, but I did mention a couple of weeks ago on the blog about UD Ovation using Jim's jersey # as his card #.  Here we are again, as UD Retro has Jim's jersey number for his card number.  
  • One of the few cards that I can remember seeing Jim hat less.  He's always in the field or at the plate hitting.  
  • Bio on the back:  In '98, tied a Major League record with six homers in the Post Season including the third ever grand slam in the ALCS.  Jim's GS came in game 6 in the 5th inning off of David Cone, but wasn't enough as the Yankees won the game 9-5 to move on to the World Series.
