Guess my Fitty Cent Auto

At a recent card show, one of my favorite dealers tossed me a baseball and asked "Who's autograph is this?"  I looked at it and replied "Catfish Hunter." "Sparky Lyle".  Cool, I was right!  He tossed me another and asked the same question but this time, he said he really didn't know.  I looked for a few minutes and first thought Orel Hershiser, but it's a great and distinctive auto, so it wasn't long before I came up with the correct answer.  Can you??

Show your knowledge!  No prize this time, just bragging rights.  I saw one of these exact inscriptions on Ebay for $109 Buy it Now!  I'm pretty sure that never sold even though that one came with a COA.


PS, the dealer gave me this one and the previously mentioned Catfish Hunter for 50 cents each!

Dave Henderson? Looks like a 42, and the years match up (Boston in 86, Oakland in 88-90)
