Description

    Cy Young Hand Embellished Giclee Artwork. Offered is a 36" x 24" artwork of the greatest pitcher of all, Cy Young. The artwork has been stretched on a stretcher frame and is ready to hang. Artist Grant Smith has painted highlights on the giclee, signed in lower right and numbered #2 of 30 in lower left. Young retired with 511 career wins. His win total set the record for most career wins by a pitcher. Cy Young's career is seen as a bridge from baseball's earliest days to its modern era; he pitched against stars such as Cap Anson , already an established player when the National League was first formed in 1876, as well as against Eddie Collins ,who played until 1930. When Young's career began, pitchers delivered the baseball underhand and fouls were not counted as strikes. The pitcher's mound was not moved back to its present position of 60 feet 6 inches until Young's fourth season; he did not wear a glove until his sixth season. Young led his league in wins five times (1892, 1895, and 1901-1903), finishing second twice. His career high was 36 in 1892. He had fifteen seasons with twenty or more wins, two more than the runners-up, Christy Mathewson and Warren Spahn .
