Default Changing of the Guard: Cy Young vs. Grover Cleveland Alexander

One hundred years ago - September 7, 1911 - Cy Young loses a 1-0 pitchers' duel to a rookie named Grover Cleveland Alexander. A month later, Young retires with a career 511 wins.

Please post and show your cards of Young and/or Alexander!!!

Cheers,
Blair

I question my decision to focus my collection on HOF Pitchers when I realize I will have to eventually save up enough money to buy a Cy Young card.

Game, set and match on that E107 Young!

But I always ask when looking at these two great hurlers...why do they each look like 60 yr old men in every picture...even the earliest ones?

It's not supposed to be a competition. It's more like a pot luck dinner.

Brian,
If you must continue to torture us with that card, go ahead.
Seriously, that is a phenomenal card!
