Jim Thome card #208 2000 Upper Deck MVP Second Season Standouts #SS6

  • The only insert that I have of Jim from the 2000 MVP set, I was surprised to see 13 different insert sets from that release.   Of course that includes a couple of game used/signature inserts.
  • Bio on the back:  "Thome hit the second of his four Division Series home runs versus Boston on 10/7/99."  
  • Career home run #208 was hit 5/24/2000 off of Detroit's Allen McDill.  Thome's homer brought the Indians to within 9-7, but the Tigers wound up winning the game 10-9.
  • Also on 5/24/00, pitcher Shawn Estes of the Giants drove in 5 runs, including a grand slam, in a 18-0 whitewash of the Expos.
