A pitcher so great that the top award for the position bears his name; Cy Young is the winningest pitcher in Major League history, with 511 wins. Many see Young's record as untouchable, making his baseball cards, such as the valuable 1909 Cy Young card, coveted by fans and collectors alike. After playing for the Cleveland Spiders and the St. Louis Perfectos, he signed with the Boston Americans, later the Red Sox, and threw the first perfect game in American League history. Among his accomplishments are pitching without a glove for his first five seasons, throwing three no-hitters, and a record 7,356 innings pitched. His MLB record 749 complete games and 815 career starts make any type of Cy Young autograph merchandise valuable, especially since he played over 100 years ago. For more recent, less costly memorabilia, browse the vast listings on eBay for an autograph from a Cy Young Award winner, such as the first winner: Don Newcombe. Since the award began in 1956, those to win the award multiple times include Sandy Koufax, Tom Seaver, Tim Lincecum, and Clayton Kershaw, among others. For an extraordinary piece of baseball memorabilia, keep an eye open for that 1909 Cy Young portrait baseball card featuring the hurler in his Cleveland uniform.
