Mr Incredible

#25 Jim Thome - "Mr Incredible" - 9" x 12" Acrylic on paper. Thome hit 612 homeruns in his 22 year career - good for 7th all-time. I call him Mr. Incredible because he looks just like the cartoon character. My favorite thing about Thome, on my fantasy team I traded Andy Benes for a $2 Jim Thome when he was a rookie. Won the league with him two years later. Lots of good players wore 25 Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro but the steroids kept them off my list.
Atlanta players that wore #25 - Andruw Jones (could have been so good), Pete Smith, and briefly the colorful Willie Montanez. 
#24 in next - a HOF centerfielder
