By 1997, The “Big Hurt” Frank Thomas had become a Chi-Town legend at Comiskey Park. At just 29 years old Thomas had won two M.V.P awards, hit 30+ home runs six times, including three seasons with 40 or more, and driven in 100 R.B.I in seven straight seasons. You can’t blame Chad for becoming a super collector, being a White Sox fan and all. Over the years Chad has put together an amazing collection that is closing in on 2,000 different Frank Thomas cards and a total of 28% of all cards ever made of the Big Hurt. Out of those 28%, 77 of them are autographs, 120 game-used, and 60 patches. In total, counting doubles, Chad has approximately 4,000 Frank Thomas baseball cards!
Below are a few of his favorite cards. You can find more on his personal website, including cards for trade/sale. If you think you have a Big Hurt he could use, shoot him a message sometime at the Beckett Message boards. He goes by the name “cobra29svt”.
