394 Wins

Gregory Alan Maddux should be a first ballot Hall of Famer in three years.  He spent part of 2007 and 2008 with the Padres.  He is best known as a Chicago Cub and Atlanta Brave.  He has 355 wins in his career, 20 of them with the Padres.  I think I got this from ebay, but I wouldn't swear to it.  I might have gotten it through the mail. Greg has paid tribute to one of the all time great pitchers in naming his children, Amanda "Paige" Maddux and "Satchel" Chase Maddux.  Michael Ausley Maddux has 39 wins in his career which brings the Maddux family win total to 394 career wins.  In his first major league game he faced his brother and as did many other pitchers, he lost.  He pitched in 114 games for the Padres, mostly as a relief pitcher.  I got this card signed through the mail.  Mike is currently the pitching coach for the Texas Rangers.  Interesting Mike's entry on wikipedia says he is distantly related to Frank Zappa, but there is no mention of that on Greg's entry.

I don't want to rain on your parade but you must have gotten the Greg Maddux on Ebay since it doesn't really look like any variation of his autograph.

I'd have to agree with Laurens, that doesn't look like a Greg Maddux auto.
