On Friday August 1, 2014, Tristar Productions will host a public autograph signing for Cleveland Indians/ Chicago White Sox 5x MLB All-Star 1B/DH, Jim Thome. The signing is part of the 35th Annual National Sports Collectors Convention which will be held inside the International Exposition Center (also known as the I-X Center) in Cleveland, Ohio.
The Cleveland Indians drafted Jim Thome as a freshman out of Illinois Central College during the 13th round of the 1989 Amateur Baseball Draft and made his MLB Debut in 1991. From 1991 through 1993, Thome spent a ton of time traveling between the minors and the majors. In 1994, Thome became a permanent fixture in the Indians starting lineup after hitting 20 home runs and 52 RBI in just 98 games. From 1995 through 2002, he was one of the most dangerous hitters in the American League. During that time span, Thome averaged 38 home runs, 104 RBI along with a .293 batting average. He also led The Tribe to back-to-back World Series appearances in 1996 and 1997. Thome joined the Phillies in 2003 and led the National League with 47 home runs. He played for the Chicago White Sox from 2006 through 2008, were he continued to hit over 30 home runs a year. He spent his last few seasons with the Dodgers, Twins, Indians, Phillies and Orioles before retiring in 2012. He played in five MLB All-Star Games and his 612 career home runs is the seventh highest total in MLB history.
