1995 Pinnacle, Chipper Jones
#111 Chipper Jones
This is another awesome TTM that I got back in the mid-'90s, most likely 1995. Looking back, it is great to see a few successful TTMs from young players that turned out to be really good. More often than not, you end up with the Ted Woods and Phil Hiatts.
I don't think that I need to say much about Chipper. His career speaks for itself. His batting average did fall 100 points from last year, though. For most players, that would be catastrophic. But not for Chipper. He still finished at .264, which was the second lowest of his career. It makes me wonder if it was an off year or is his age catching up with him?
So, what do you think? If Chipper retired today, would he be Hall of Fame worthy?
The back of this card lists Chipper's position as "Infield/OF". He can do it all.
