There is a drawer in my card room that has a stack of cards that I just want to get signed. It's more than just getting someone's autograph, it is that the card is either a cool parallel, or has nice photography on it, that I think would look cool in my album. This 1995 Topps of Royce Clayton is one of those cards. I like this action shot of former Padre, Tim Hyers sliding into Clayton. It doesn't look like Hyers signs regularly, because if he did, I'd get him to sign this card, as well. I saw that Clayon signed TTM through PastPros now, so I sent the card on its way, and got it back fairly quickly.
Clayton (b. 1970) played in the majors from 1991 to 2007 for the Giants, Cardinals, Rangers, White Sox, Brewers, Rockies, Diamondbacks, Nationals, Reds, Blue Jays and Red Sox. He had 1,904 hits, 110 home runs and a .258 batting average. He was an All Star in 1997. He appeared on the 2013 Hall of Fame ballot, but received no votes.
I mailed to Clayton via PastPros on November 14 and got the card back on December 3, for a 19-day TAT.
I collect Clayton because of all the different teams. I just started an Edwin Jackson collection because he broke the record.
