A career 222-game winner, Tim Hudson burst on the major-league scene for the A's with his 11-2 mark in 1999 and his league-leading 20 wins in 2000—earning him second place in CYA voting. Hudson's Majestic size-48 mesh jersey is officially from batting practice because of its distinctive "sunglasses" version of the elephant logo on the left sleeve. A black-marker "8" signature appears on the reverse numeral 5. Light wear. Auction LOA from JSA (for autograph).
