Jim Thome card #206 2000 Black Diamond Rookie Edition #15

  • Started looking through the year 2000 cards for Jim and this card totally confused me.  I looked at the back and saw the stats for 2000 on it and immediately assumed this was a 2001 card.  Had to do a little investigating to find out it was released in 2000.
  • I would have liked to have seen Upper Deck use Jim as card #25 again, just as they did in the 2 previous Black Diamond releases.  Nomar Garciaparra wound up on card #25.
  • Career home run #206 for Jim was hit 5/11/2000 against Jason Rakers and the KC Royals.  It was just overkill by that time, as the Indians were already leading by 10 and went on to shutout the Royals 16-0.
