Fun Cards: 1984 Topps Jeff Jones

Jones

The Cincinnati Reds gave Jeff Jones a chance in 1983. In sixteen April games, Jones collected 10 hits in 44 at-bats before returning to the minor leagues. He never played another major league game. Donruss was the only major baseball card company to feature Jones in their 1984 set.

Jones’ biggest minor league season was 1982, when he broke the record for home runs in the Midwest League with 42; that record still stands today. He also drove in 101 runs and batted .301. Jones left the Cincinnati organization following the 1983 season, playing out his career in the Cubs’ organization in 1984 and 1985.
