Luis Tiant- 1971 Topps -emailed to do Link Exchange
So I picked Luis Tiant as My Twins card.
Some fans don't know that Luis was ever with the Twins.
After an injury-plagued season in 1969 with the Indians, Tiant was traded to the Twins in a multi-player deal that brought fellow pitcher Dean Chance and third baseman Graig Nettles to the Indians. With Minnesota, Tiant began 1970 with six wins, but then he fractured his right scapula and virtually ended the season. He showed little promise in the 1971 spring training, so he was released.
