Signed insert card.
Pulled from a box of 2011-12 In The Game Enforcers.
Out of all 15 ITG Enforcers autographed cards I got, this one is my favorite. Stu Grimson played a handful of games with the Calgary Flames, but became a full-time NHLer with the Chicago Blackhawks. He was claimed in the 1993 expansion draft and was one of the alternate captains of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks during their first season. Coincidentally, it was around this time that Grimson became known as "The Grim Reaper." He would then blossom into arguably the best fighter in the NHL, even besting Bob Probert.
I got this card in my third (of three) boxes of In the Game's Enforcers series. It is signed in black Sharpie marker.
Here is a classic fight between Grimson and Probert:
