#10 Chipper Jones - "Larry" - 9" x 12" acrylic on paper. Chipper is by far my favorite player to wear number 10. The first overall pick in the 1990 MLB draft. 8 times and All-Star, NL MVP in 1999. He won a batting title in 2008 (.364). Chipper is one of the most accomplished switch hitter of all time - and is the only switch hitter to finish with a .300+ batting average (.303) and over 400 homeruns (468). Some tens you may have considered - Larry Bowa, Ron Cey, Andre Dawson and Ron Santo. Besides Chipper - Chris Chambliss was another Atlanta player to wear the number 10 well. 
#9 - only one pick in my mind - a legend
