2019 National Pickup - Chipper Jones Signed Baseball
I added Chipper Jones to the list on Saturday at the show, after I had looked aroud and priced several baseballs. This one was a little more expensive than the others, but it was on a brand new OMLB ball and came with the Hall of Fame inscription. Because I bundled this baseball with another big name, I got this at a nicely reduced rate.
Jones (b. 1972) played in the majors in 1993 and from 1995 to 2012 for the Braves. He had 2,726 hits, 468 home runs and a .303 batting average. He was the 1999 NL MVP and finished second (to Hideo Nomo) in the 1995 NL Rookie of the Year voting. Jones was an 8-time All Star and won the World Series in 1995.
Jones was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2018 (his first ballot) when he was named on 97.2% of the vote.
Jones becomes my 144th Hall of Famer on a baseball.
