1955 Topps #38 - Bob Turley

Show of hands of anyone who knew that this dude won a Cy Young Award? Yeah, I thought so.

'Bullet' Bob Turley (b. 1930) pitched for the Browns/Orioles, Yankees, Angels and Red Sox from 1951, 1953-1963. His best year was 1958 when he went 21-7 for the Yankees. He was rewarded for that performance with the 1958 Cy Young Award. He was a part of two World Series winners (1956 and 1958) with the Yankees, winning the World Series MVP award in 1958. He was also a 3-time All Star ('54, '55, '58). He ended his career with a record of 101-85 and an ERA of 3.64 with 1,265 strikeouts.
