Played alongside a duo of other Jones players. The trio was nicknamed ‘The Ham, Lam and Jam Jones Show’. I had wanted to get him for a while but saw a well priced certified on EBay to knock Jam off my list. Strangely this set is the only one to have any cards of AJ in them. I’m sure he was tickled to finally have one. He’s got a great autograph.
