Tim Hudson 2000 SPx auto (#0232/1500)
I've long admired the shiny holographic/gold look of the 2000 SPx set, and better yet, the on-card autos from the product. Hudson has plenty of others out there, but this is the one I've been locked onto for years (with a Sweet Spot being choice #2). I didn't think I'd be able to find one for under $15 plus shipping, but after checking out some completed listings I started to get more optimistic, and I ended up with surprisingly little competition in this particular auction.
Thanks to the beautiful Tools of the Trade card from last time, I'm in the perfect position to post a trifecta of Hudson soon since I also have a RC to add to that album, and that may inspire me to great a "trifectas and more" page on this blog since I have a few other good examples.
So hooray for a new PC addition that doesn't fall into my Tigers and Michigan Baseball collections but still makes me happy and was therefore totally a worthwhile purchase! Also, hooray for the return of Huddy's health and effectiveness this season after his last one ended so painfully--it's great to see him back in business!
