Cy Young (Cleveland, Portrait) - 1909-1911 T206 White Border

When it comes to durability and winning, this man set the standard, a standard that may never be approached. While most experts do not consider Cy Young to be the most dominant pitcher in history, his 511 career wins are simply mind-boggling. Just think for a second. You wouldhave to win 20 games per year, every year, for 25 consecutive years to reach 500. As if winning 500 wasn't tough enough, you would still need to win 11 more games to reach Young! Young completed 749 games and pitched 7,354 innings in his career, both all-time records. Young'sthree no-hitters and a career ERA of 2.63 just add to his legacy, and his name graces the MLB award for pitching excellence. Young has three cards to choose from within the T206 set and, with the exception of the super rarities, all three cards are considered tougher than most otherHall of Fame cards in the set. Along with the Mathewson, the Young Portrait is one of the tougher portraits in the T206 set to find in high-grade.

Cy Young was featured in the T206 collection at the end of his illustrious career. The MLB career leader in wins (511), most innings pitched (7,354), games started (815), and complete games (749), Denton “Cy” (short for “Cyclone”) Young is considered one of the top-five pitchers of all time. He won 30 or more games 5 times and 20 or more games 10 times. Young also pitched 3 no-hitters, and in 1904 he pitched the first perfect game in modern baseball history. He was known for his control and durability rather than his overpowering fastball. In 1956 the Cy Young Award was created to honor the best pitcher in baseball. Since 1967, it has been given to the best pitcher in the American League and the National League. Cy Young was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1937.
