1992 Triple Play, Royce Clayton

#123 Royce Clayton

Here's another card that I got signed through the mail in the '90s. I swear, once I get done with these 1992 cards, the "through the mail, early '90s" posts will start to thin out. So, just bear with me for another week or so.

Royce had an amazingly long career. It's hard to believe that he lasted as long as he did. He played Major League ball for 17 seasons. 2007 was his last year. I don't remember him retiring after the season, so maybe nobody decided to sign him and forced him into retirement. It seems like that is happening more and more each year. I wonder if he played any indy ball last year.

I once tried to interview Royce Clayton. His response to my request:

"I've got to go work. Later."

There was no "later."

I get that all the time when I ask for autographs. Nine times out of ten, there is no later.

Later never, ever comes. Nice action shot.
