TTM Success - Tyler Mapes

I needed Tyler Mapes for my 2018 Carolina League All Star set, but he was promoted before the game was held.  Luckily, my good friend, Gerard, reached out to him on Instagram and asked if he would sign some cards TTM.  When Gerard told me that Mapes had agreed, I mailed this (and Chris's card) to Harrisburg.

Mapes (b. 1991) was a 30th round pick in the 2014 Amateur Draft by the Nationals out of Tulane University.  He has a career minor league record of 27-17 with a 2.66 ERA and 255 strike outs.  He split this season with High A Potomac and Double A Harrisburg.

I mailed to Mapes on July 9 and got the card back on July 23, for a 14-day TAT.
