Baseball Hall of Famer Gaylord Perry was one of the most successful pitchers in major league history. A five-time All-Star, Perry was the first pitcher to win the Cy Young Award in each league, winning it in the American League in 1972 with the Cleveland Indians and in the National League in 1978 with the San Diego Padres. A right-hander, he pitched from 1962 to 1983 for eight different teams. During a 22-year baseball career, Perry compiled 314 wins, 3,534 strikeouts and a 3.11 earned run average. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1991.

In 1978, for his outstanding efforts on the mound, Perry was the recipient of the National League’s coveted Cy Young Award, which goes to the top pitcher each season. Perry's 21 wins that season accounted for 25% of the Padres’ victories all year long, and he also became the third pitcher to strike out 3,000 batters, accomplishing the career feat just two weeks after his 40th birthday! The nearly 12-pound prize measures 13” wide by 17.5” high and features a carved, black base with a raised sterling silver design that shows a right hand cupping a two-fingered fastball. The silver nameplate on the award reads: “CY YOUNG AWARD Presented to Gaylord Perry Most Valuable Pitcher National League 1978.” Tarnishing is apparent on the sterling silver design.

Includes Letter of Provenance from the San Diego Hall of Champions.
