When I was a little kid I would always look at this card and say that is going to be me in 10 years. I always looked up to Chipper as ball player. I tried to field, hit, and throw just like chipper. I even had his #10 all the way through high school. Chipper is and will always be my favorite baseball player, and his rookie card will always be the first card I take out when I am looking through all my old baseball cards.

For this week in ds 106 I choose to tell a story about my favorite baseball card. The card that has always meant the most to me is Chipper Jones rookie card for the Braves. Ever since I was a little kid Chipper Jones has been my favorite baseball player. Now that he is close to retiring his rookie card means a whole lot more to me.
What makes Chippers card so valuable to me is he has been with the team his whole career. As a huge baseball fan you have to respect a player that stays with one team his whole career. Chippers rookie card just isn't my favorite because he is my favorite player, but his rookie card was the first Brave card I ever got. My grandma got his rookie card for me for Christmas one year. This one card has so much sentimental value to me.
