The Fort Collins resident became the latest illustrated face on the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office’s kid-friendly and limited-edition line of inventor trading cards. Grandin, who teaches at Colorado State University, is touted as the first Colorado inventor on a card though one other inventor, Nikola Tesla, did spend a year in Colorado Springs working on his electricity experiments.

“I just can’t believe the good company I have with Thomas Edison and Tesla. He was probably autistic. He invented the power plant,” Grandin said to a crowd that showed up Sunday at the Patent Office’s Rocky Mountain Regional Office in Denver.
