Two Names, Three Cards

Tyrone Eugene Harris pitched for three seasons for the Padres in the middle of his career.  He pitched for 7 seasons but only played multiple seasons for the .Padres and Mariners.  He played parts of seasons for Philadelphia, Detroit, Montreal and Baltimore.  This was one of the more difficult signatures that I have tracked down, I had to wait many years to find this on the Bay
Gregory Wade Harris may have made more money after he retired than he did as player.  He played 6 years for the Padres before he and Bruce Hurst were traded to Colorado.  He played a couple of seasons there finishing up his career in Minnesota. After he retired he sued his surgeon for messing up his arm and won $6 million, and in another trial he won a settlement he won $10 million.  I got this signed through the mail.  I have to put something behind cards with white borders when I scan them so they don't come out  like this. 
Greg Allen Harris preceded Gregory Wade Harris with the Padres by four years.  He pitched during the 1984 postseason for the Padres, but what makes him stand out is that in 1995 he pitched with both arms in a game.  He was pitching for the Expos against the Reds, he retired Reggie Sanders right handed, then he walked Hal Morris left handed, got Eddie Taubensee to ground out left handed, and then went with the right hand to retire Bret Boone to close out the inning. I acquired this through Ebay.
