Chipper Jones’ name rings in Atlanta like Usher’s. After all, the Braves legend recorded the last official hit in Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium history and the first hit in ATL’s legendary Turner Field. Like the Super Bowl performing artist, the Hall of Fame third baseman’s influence reaches beyond The Peach State, as he authored a career that included eight All-Star appearances, an NL MVP crowning, and the elusive status as a World Champion. His resume, popularity, and notoriety as one of the best infielders to lace them up only add value to his rookie cards and more. So check out our list of the “Chip Off the Ole Block’s” greatest RCs and others.

1991 Bowman Baseball #569 Chipper Jones RC

Among the notable rookies featured in the set is Jones, the top pick from the previous year’s draft. Word on the street is the 1991 Bowman #569 Chipper Jones RC is the most valuable card in the set.
