Jim Baxter is credited as being one of the greatest and most skilful footballers to have come from Scotland. A left-footed mid-fielder with natural talent, "Slim Jim" is remembered for his major role in two victories over England in London, in 1963 and notably in 1967 at Wembley. A few months earlier, England had won the World Cup: the 1967 Scottish victory enabled the travelling Scottish supporters (the "Tartan Army") to claim Scotland as world champions.

Baxter was a gambler and heavy drinker, he was disinclined to submit to the normal training discipline. However, his natural brilliance often resulted in victory for his team.

In later life, he became a publican. His drinking problems necessitated a liver transplant in 1991.
