Thunder from Down Under

I hope no one gets the wrong idea from the title of the post. This post is strictly baseball/baseball card related. Come on people!

This 1996 Pinnacle Aficionado card came in a package recently from Jeroen, The Dutch Card Guy.

I was planning on having it be a part of my Commenting on cards from The Dutch Card Guy (Part #5) post, but after a little research I knew it needed its own post.

I saw the "a.k.a THUNDER" on the back and wondered how Dave Nilsson got a nickname like Thunder. Then I realized that he's from Australia, so you see, Dave Nilsson is literally Thunder from Down Under.

The only thing that would make this better is if it listed his birthplace on the back of the card.
