Adam Jones is officially retiring today so I wanted to give him a quick blog spotlight. Exciting player, good person, plus he's a fellow San Diego kid, so he's easy for me to root for . At some point a few years ago I started snagging cheap/cool cards of his here and there, building a decent little PC.

Adam Jones PC highlights
A couple low-numbered autos to kick things off.
Some relics. Bat chips and grey swatches, but hey, differing texture with each pair, at least.
No trifecta for me this time, btw, as I don't have any Adam Jones rookies. In fact, I think I only have Orioles cards of him, so I should probably try to score some additions documenting his career outside of Baltimore.
Fun photo on his 2018 card, shown here in four varieties.
A few more shiny highlights from the PC.
Someday I should try for a cycle/rainbow of those Pinnacle clear vision cards.
Topps Chipz would have been a much better product if the parallels weren't so tough.
The DK mini only makes the post because it's a Christmas Card.
I checked the Chip in the dark, and I don't think it's a glow-in-the-dark red parallel, sadly, just a regular red parallel (which are still pretty tough).
Finally, I'm pretty sure this was the very first custom overlay I ever made, spicing up a boring 2012 SP Signature Edition autograph I snagged for a couple bucks back in 2015. I've made a bunch of other overlays since, but this is still up there among my favorites.
That'll do it for this post. Wishing Adam all the best in his next chapter!
