Cy Young

This guy was so good they named an award after him.

This card would be in pretty good shape if it weren't for the missing upper-left corner. But hey, it's a 99-year-old baseball card of Cy Young.

Yep, that Cy Young.

The man who won 511 games. The man who had at least 30 wins five times. The man who won 20 or more games ten times. The man with three no hitters and one perfect game.

Yep, that Cy Young.

I think it's safe to say that no one will ever surpass 511 wins. And of those winners of the Cy Young Award, only Denny McLain has won 3o or more games. He won 31 in 1968. Young did it five times.

I bet Cy Young never had a pitch count.

It's a crime ol' Denton True never won the Cy Young Award. (Look, somebody had to say it.)
