Happy Birthday Brian Jordan!!!

Happy Birthday Brian Jordan!!!

2-Sport superstar Brian Jordan turns 46 years old today.

Often overlooked because of the attention given to Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders, Brian Jordan was another 2-sport star that excelled at both professional baseball and football.

And while Jackson and Sanders may have left bigger impressions on the football field, Jordan was a much better baseball player.

Blessed with power and speed, Jordan had the tools to be an All-Star on the baseball diamond.  A solid hitter, Jordan sports a career batting average of .282 while also having three .300+ seasons under his belt.  With a flare for both speed and power, Jordan collected 119 stolen bases during his 15-year career and 184 home runs as well.

Jordan was selected as an All-Star in 1999.  He placed in the Top 20 for the MVP on three different occasions with his highest place in 1996 at 8th with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Happy Birthday Mr. Jordan!!!

SIGNING RESULTS: Former All-Star & 2-Sport Superstar, Brian Jordan!!!

I have long been a fan of former Cardinals and Braves superstar, Brian Jordan.

He recently did a signing in the St. Louis area, and loyal ’30-YOC’ reader Gerad was there for the event.  Not only did he attend, but he got two baseballs signed – 1 for him and 1 for me!!

Have a look:

BRIAN JORDAN BALL

 

While Jordan may not have achieved the fame that Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders achieved during their professional careers, Jordan dazzled both the major league baseball and national football league for more than a decade.

Jordan starred for both the Cardinals and Braves during his big league career.  He was an All-Star for the Braves in 1999.

A great addition to my signed baseball collection – Thanks Gerad!!!
