1999 Pacific Invincible Thunder Alley #13 Scott Rolen

Philadelphia and the surrounding regions experienced a little bit of our own thunder alley last night, causing the postponement of game one of the Rays-Phillies series.  After almost three hours of steady rain, the game was finally called.

The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Sunday.

I wonder why Pacific decided to call this particular insert set "Thunder Alley?"  There's nothing either thunderish or alleyish about the design or the card's theme at all.  I guess it does have a better ring to it than Pacific Invincible Gold Bricks with Fancy Neon-Like Team Logos.  (This is the kind of thing I think about during rain delays.)
