Jim Thome card #287 1997 Upper Deck Predictor #P13

  • While I applaud Upper Deck for its uniqueness in creating a lottery type scratcher with this card, it's kind of disappointing to never know if it would have won without defacing the card.
  • Just noticed in the background, the on-deck circles feature the Tigers and the Red Sox.  Maybe they could have included a game with Thome's Indians in the picture?  Just a thought...
  • Another cheap pickup from the Sportlots lot from a few weeks back.  Still a few more Thome cards to show off before I get back to the 2002 portion of the PC.
  • Career HR #287:  Jim hit this homer on 4/21/2002, off of Rick Reed of the Twins.  The 2-run shot broke a scoreless tie in the 4th, but it would be all the Indians get on that day as the Twins would win 4-2.  It would be the Tribe's 6th straight loss and drop them to 11-7.
