Keeping up with the Jones, Part I

Robert Joseph Jones was one of two Bobby Jones on the Padres in 2002.  He was right handed and Bobby M. Jones was left handed, they had previously been teammates on the Mets, and had faced each other when Bobby J was with the Mets and Bobby M. was with the Rockies.  He spent 8 years with the Mets before finishing his career with 2 years with the Padres.  I have never seen a card of Bobby M. Jones with the Padres, but would like to have a matched pair of Bobby Jones autographs.  I got this signed through the mail a couple of years ago.
Christopher Carlos Jones played 32 games for the Padres in 1997, he made into the Padres' Mothers' cookies set.  These were some of the coolest sets issued through the '90's and then Keebler took over through 2002.  I wish that Team Total and 40 Man were still around, so that we could get some of the lesser known players on cards.  I got this signed a few years ago when Chris was managing in the minor leagues.

Daryl Wayne Jones was drafted by the Padres in 2004 and played Rookie ball and A through 2007 before  playing for the Edinburg, TX Coyotes in 2008. I got this off of eBay a couple years ago.
