Manny Mota Says "Get a Grip"

OK... I admit it.  The title to this post is entirely misleading.  But, what the heck, eh?  If I want to make the big bucks from this blog I gotta find some way to make you click.  After all, I could really used that 1/100 of 1 cent I theoretically make from Google Ads.

Featured in this post is something I've never seen before.  It is a vintage tube of Manny Mota Grip Aid that comes in a cylindrical tube and is emblazoned with the smiling mug of our favorite pinch hitter.

This stuff is very similar to pine tar.  In fact, it's a great alternative to that messy stuff.  It is reusable, won't stain your uniform, and will allow you to get a stronger and firmer grip on the bat.  As I'm sure you know, this product still exist on store shelves today.  In fact, numerous companies sell what looks like a re-branded version of this product called "Manny Mota Grip Tape".

BTW, the grip tape featured in this post was produced by Manny Mota Enterprises.  Unfortunately, I do not know the date when this particular item was manufactured.
