With cerebral and physical talents like no other pitcher, Greg Maddux had already logged 95 career triumphs before his 27th birthday and free agency signing with the Braves. Headlining an already superb staff in Atlanta, Maddux went 20-10 in 1993 with league-bests in ERA (2.36) and complete games (8) to garner his second of four straight Cy Young Awards. This Braves home jersey was worn by “The Professor” as he embarked on an annual postseason run of 10 straight seasons (excluding the 1994 strike-shortened campaign). The white knit button-down garment features twill identifiers and proper “Wilson” tagging. All original and unaltered, the jersey shows light wear. Full photo LOA from Dave Miedema.

The white knit button-down garment features “Braves” angled across the chest in red-on-blue twill and a tomahawk logo sewn just below in like fashion (with blue and gold embroidered accents). On the back, the since-retired “31” is sewn in red-on-blue twill and “MADDUX” is arched on a nameplate just above in solid blue block-style twill characters. Red-and-blue trim lines the cotton-lined collar, button path and sleeve endings. On the tapered left front tail, a “Wilson” label is accompanied by a swatch with a chenille-stitched “93” identifier, as well as flap tags respectively denoting size “42” and “FV” (indicating that the jersey was issued in May).
