OK, so it’s not "Smith" or "Jones" but is Tony Gwynn’s name that hard to spell? Apparently so. Newly minted posters featuring the 2007 Hall of Famer-and meant to be autographed– will be delayed while a correction is made.
Cal Ripken can probably sympathize. For years, the spelling-challenged have written or typed "Ripkin". You’d think being elected to the Hall of Fame might solve that issue. Not for Tony Gwynn, who was ready to autograph some giant posters after his QVC TV appearance last week. That’s when the North County Times reports he noticed something amiss.
Ripken’s company, Ironclad Authentics, has also loaded up on Tony Gwynn autographs.
