Jim Thome Baseball Game
Evidently, in 1997, Jim Thome was asked to put his name and likeness on a dice/board baseball game. I had never seen nor heard of this beast until I saw a recent post on OldTimeFamilyBaseball.com. From there, I just had to look around. Sure enough, there are several on eBay... I may have to add this to my Christmas wish list, just for kicks.
For those who enjoy "airburshing," you can see this game is NOT licensed by the MLB in any form or fashion. Sure, he may be wearing an Indians uniform in these images, but you're not supposed to know he is... Based on the work done, it probably would have been cheaper to get the rights than pay the person to airbrush the images. Then again, I know several of you could whip that out pretty quickly.
