The face of a perennial playoff contender for 19 seasons, Cooperstown-bound third baseman Chipper Jones used and signed this Louisville Slugger (32.6-oz/34) C243 block-letter weapon during a 1993 campaign that saw him post an auspicious .667 batting average (2-for-3). The uncracked white ash lumber shows outstanding game use with ball, bat-rack and stitch marks throughout. Jones has signed on the barrel in blue marker (9 strength). Full photo LOA from John Taube.

Addition evidence of game use includes black-ink transfers from ONL baseballs, as well as light pine-tar residue about the handle. The knob has been marked in black fiber tip. Between the center brand and barrel stampings, Jones blue marker autograph projects (9) strength and clarity.
A career Atlanta Brave who performed in 21 different postseason series, Jones is likely destined for the Hall of Fame and this lumber is perhaps the earliest Chipper gamer extant!
