2011 Topps Gypsy Queen Home Run Heroes #HH14 Jim Thome

Congratulations Jim Thome!

Thome hit his 600th career home run tonight in Detroit off pitcher Daniel Schlereth.  I vividly remember him hitting his 400th career home run in a Phillies uniform back on June 14, 2004.  In total, 96 of his 600 home runs were hit while wearing the red pinstripes between 2003 and 2005.

I'm looking forward to visiting Cooperstown one day and seeing Thome's plaque hanging among the game's greats.
