Jim Thome card #266 2001 Upper Deck Legends #13

  • Spring training duds for sure.  I'm guessing that he's kneeling at second base after hitting a double...
  • Bio on the back:  "Thome has been giving the fans at Jacobs Field thrills since the mid 1990s and shows no signs of stopping."   I will be thrilled if he gets elected to Cooperstown in a few weeks.   Saw an early vote count that shows him on nearly 90% of the early ballots (as my memory serves).  
  • I don't ever remember seeing this set in stores.  It's only 90 cards, so it almost makes me think of it as a large insert set rather than a pack release.  40 of the 90 players featured are in the HOF.   Here's hoping #41 isn't too far off...
