Jim Thome card #283 2002 Topps Heritage #305

  • Brilliant.  That's how I would describe the person whose idea it was to recreate old sets with current ballplayers.
  • Maybe Topps should just use their '52 design for their living set.   But that's just me talking...
  • Career homer #283 was his first of the 2002 season.  What a way to start a 52 HR season, it was a grand slam off of Minnesota's Rick Reed.   The granny would increase the 2nd inning lead for the Indians to 7-2 on their way to a 9-3 win.  It would also be the Indians 8th win in their first 9 games of the '02 season.
