Jim "Mudcat" Grant

Former-Twin Jim "Mudcat" Grant signed two cards for me, including his 1963 and 1971 Topps.  I had enclosed $10 with my request.

His signature has gotten smaller over the years, and he no longer adds his nickname to his signature.  Here is a 1965 Topps he signed for me at TwinsFest in 2009.

There's a great video of Mr. Grant hitting a 3-run home run in game six of the 1965 World Series on YouTube:

Grant won that game in a 6-hit complete game, 5-1 to send the deciding game back to Los Angeles.
