How about a few Leaf/Donruss examples to start?
Topps/Bowman was able to sneak in a fielding pose on the 2002 Bowman card, and the Hit Parade features something that Thome wasn't well known for, base running. 19 steals in 22 big league seasons will attest to that.
These next 4 cards are probably my favorite of the entire lot...Heritage
The eyes are a little spooky on the 2002 card, reminiscent of some of the '52 Topps cards. My favorite is the reproduction of the '57 Topps card with Thome kneeling and using the bat as a prop. It's hard not to like any of the Heritage cards, maybe that's telling me something...
This group of 17 will put me over the 150 mark for the Thome collection (once I catalog them, hopefully tomorrow). I still have a little more than a dozen left to show off. This big purchase is something that I'm glad I did; it was a good way to knock off a lot of base cards quickly and cheaply.
I'll probably do this once more before year's end, without the severe overload.
Thanks for reading, Robert
