Chipper Jones Signed Game Used Baseball From His Final Career Game 2012 PSA DNA
Presented here is an Official Major League Baseball Allan H. Selig ball used during the Atlanta Braves 6-2 home victory over the New York Mets on September 30th, 2012. This was Chipper Jones’ final regular season home game. The 2018 Hall of Famer started the game at third base, finishing 1-2 with a run scored and two walks. Jones, an All-Star in 2012, ended his career with 468 home runs, a .303 batting average, and the 1999 National League MVP Award.
The offered baseball was used in the top of the ninth inning, when Braves reliever Cory Gearrin forced Justin Turner to fly out to centerfield. This Braves victory set a new Major League record, as it was the 23rd consecutive Kris Medlen start to end with a Braves win, breaking Whitey Ford’s half-century old record. Jones has signed this ball in blue pen on the panel to the south of Selig’s stamped signature. He inscribed “Last Home Game 9/30/12” beneath his signature. This item comes with a COA from PSA/DNA (4A62648) and a MLB Authenticated hologram (EK 234662).
