Denton T. Cy Young Signed Autographed Letter Baseball Hall of Fame PSA/DNA

Cy Young (D. 1955) entered the major leagues in 1890 with the National League's Cleveland Spiders and pitched for them until 1898. He was then transferred to the St. Louis Cardinals franchise. In 1901, Young jumped to the American League and played for the Boston Red Sox franchise until 1908, helping them win the 1903 World Series. He finished his career with the Cleveland Naps and Boston Rustlers, retiring in 1911.

Young was one of the hardest-throwing pitchers in the game early in his career. After his speed diminished, he relied more on his control and remained effective into his forties. By the time Young retired, he had established numerous pitching records, some of which have stood for over a century. He holds MLB records for the most career wins, with 511, along with most career innings pitched, games started, and complete games. He led his league in wins during five seasons and pitched three no-hitters, including a perfect game.

Young was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1937. In 1956, one year after his death, the Cy Young Award was created to honor the best pitcher in Major League Baseball for each season.

Written on the back of a fan’s letter from 1948. Cy Young writes (letter is handwritten by his good friend, Jane Benedum who was helping Young out with his fan mail, but actually signed by Cy Young).

“I lived in Peoli, but I never lived there (Milwaukee). The first year that I played in Boston we played in Milwaukee in 1901.”
