Vernon Law - 1951 Bowman

Vernon Sanders Law (March 13, 1930-) was a key member of the 1960 World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates team that won the seven game series battle with the New York Yankees. Law spent his entire career wearing a Pirates uniform (1950-1951, 1954-1967), retiring as one of the franchises winningest pitchers. Vern won ten or more game nie times during his 16-year career, and topped the 100-strikeout mark three times. Vern Law peaked at the right time in 1960 as he led the Pirates with a 20-9 record, a league leading 18 complete games and a career-high 122 strikeouts. Law was named 1960 Cy Young Award winner and the 1960 National League’s The Sporting News Pitcher of the Year, As Pittsburgh faced the high-powered New York Yankees, led by Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris and Elston Howard, in the 1960 World Series, Vern won Games 1 and 4, and started Game 7, which ended Bill Mazeroski’s legendary walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth. Though he did have success in his remaining years, injuries limited Law’s career and reduced his innings, though he did make a comeback winning 29 games in 1965 and 1966. He was named the 1965 National League Comeback Player of the Year. Vern Law finished his career following the 1967 season with a 162-147 record, 1,092 strikeouts, 119 complete games, 28 shutouts and a 3.77 career ERA.
