Larry Wayne “Chipper” Jones Is The Man
My run on Through The Mail autographs has been real spotty the last year or so. I sent out a bunch during 2008 Spring Training after having a very successful 2007 TTM season, but the success rate has been much lower. Well, a 2008 straggler arrived today and it was a doozie.
Without further ado, let me welcome my good friend, Larry Wayne Jones, better known to you and I as “Chipper.” I sent two cards and a letter to Chipper in the Spring hoping that I might be one of the lucky recipients of his signature.It was a long shot for sure, but figured it was worth a try.
Well today I received my a plain white envelope in the mail; it was from Chipper Jones.
Chipper returned my cards unsigned, but enclosed was a signed 5×7 photo and a letter explaining that he is too busy to sign individual items and substituted the photo instead. The letter explains that the signature is authentic, which it appears to be.
I received fewer TTM success over the last 12 months, but they’ve been some good ones. This Chipper ranks up there with the best, but my favorite still has to be my Daisuke Matsuzaka.
