Even though I'm not a Braves fan at age 33 and into collecting since 1984 it seems like Mr. Jones has been a constant in my collecting life for so long. I can't imagine a set without him in it. We always praise power hitters and a lot of guys who contribute a hell of a lot more to thier team get lost in that! I'd will love to see chipper Jones inducted! Grant old school pack buster

He's got a long way to go to catch Hammerin' Hank. But I don't think 1600 RBIs is too far out of the question for Chipper, if he can stay healthy for three more seasons.
