Headliners Set 15 Cy Young replaces Gold Glove Award Ozzie Smith in Headliners packs today. Veteran Cy Young is a 96 overall. This means he is tied with Future Stars Luis Patino as the top-rated player in the community market now.
Cy Young has a five-pitch mix, and his shtick is that he has a solid mid-90s fastball and then four junk pitches that are much slower. The issue with him tends to be the range in his pitch speed isn’t extreme enough, but he has a changeup, 12-6 curve, sweeping curve and screwball as those four off-speed pitches.
Veteran Cy Young has amazing control and has Workhorse as one of his quirks:
Here’s a look at his price on the community market immediately after he came out:

On top of that, I believe this is the first Stubs Sale of the year. The 15 percent off is not as crazy as the sales can get, and I only call out this sale because it usually causes prices in the community market to go up. However, which cards go up tends to vary a bit. It’s usually more focused in high-end diamonds that end up getting a boost, but we’ll have to see what plays out here during a new season.
