Thome Classic Best

God, look how thin and young Thome looks here. This was back when he was more of a spray hitter with power potential…and it’s funny to think of him as a third baseman these days, given that he’s built like a tank, but yeah…he actually wasn’t a bad one, either. I remember hearing some rumblings about Thome late in 1990, and was thrilled to first get this card and then his 1991 Upper Deck Final Edition card (which will eventually show up here). Still, awesome to see him with the Canton-Akron team, as I have some personal connection to the area (friends living there). Wonder if that stadium’s still standing?
