1999 Topps Action Flats Chipper Jones




Yet another odd-ball Chipper, this time from 1999. I wasn't crazy about the little action figure-I never did get too excited about Starting Lineups or any of the others- but the card was a keeper. The 1999 Topps set is one of my favorites of the past twenty years and for the Action Flat cards, they kept the same design-only placing the player name, team name, and Topps name opposite of the regular issue. The backs are identical, save the card number being different, and the small Action Flat logo placed on the bottom of the picture. Both feature great pictures of Chipper: one catching him with his sweet swing-eyes on the ball!- and the other which looks like he either swung and missed or absolutely crushed one!
