From the box:
Larry Wayne “Chipper” Jones of the Atlanta Braves is one of the best young players in the game today. In ’96, this 6′-3”, 200-pound switch-hitter batted .309 with 30 homes and 110 RBIs while playing third base (117 games), shortstop (38 games) and right field (1 game). During the season, he had 4 different 11-game hitting streaks and reached base safely in 35 consecutive games. In the postseason Division Series, he belted 2 homers in the Braves’ series sweep of the Dodgers.
His rookie season of ’95 saw him finish runner-up to Hideo Nomo for NL Rookie of the Year on the strength of a .265 average, 23 homers and 86 RBIs, the last number tops for all rookies that year. Jones helped lead the Braves to a world championship in ’95, hitting .389 in the Division Series, .438 in the League Championship Series and .286 in the World Series.
Chipper Jones is an example of a player who has fulfilled his early promise. After being the top selection overall in the June 1990 free-agent draft, he went on to be named the Braves best AAA player in ’93. He missed all of ’94 with a knee injury, but after his super ’95 and ’96 seasons, it’s obvious that nothing will keep Chipper Jones from being a perennial contender for the MVP award as one of baseball’s best.
The action figure comes wearing the Braves uniform including soft plastic baseball hat, belted baseball pants, jersey, a royal blue dicky that snaps to jersey, baseball socks, and black baseball cleated shoes. Accessories include a baseball bat, glove, and baseball.
The doll is fully articulated and pose-able.
