Jim Northrup was such a great ballplayer whose heroics on the field inspired many young Tiger fans everywhere. His courage in facing the constant pain of Rhumetoid Arthritis should be an inspiration to those same youngsters as they advance in years. Jim was always a gentleman and my wife and I always enjoyed seeing him and speaking to him at card shows and the times he attended events with the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame. Thanks for all of the photos, autographs and smiles Jim!
