Description

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. More on our website.

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!
