Justin Verlander Bio-
Verlander played catcher as a youth, followed by playing college baseball and setting records such as the Colonial Athletic Association record for 151 strikeouts.  Then in 2004, he was MLB draft choice for the Detroit Tigers, playing in the minors with one brief Majors appearance.  With a fast but also controlled pitch, he was awarded Rookie of the Year in 2006 and then a year later, pitched a MLB no-hitter against the Milwaukee Brewers, a first for Comerica Park.  Later that same year, he was named the AL Rookie of the Year Award.

His 2008 season was rough but by 2009, he had improved significantly, ending with a 3.45 ERA and being voted third for the Cy Young Award.  In 2010, Verlander signed a five-year extension with the Tigers, during which time he earned his 10th win of the season.  A few of his other achievements include being named to the AL All-Star team for 2007, 2009, and 2010, loading the bases in the ninth with no outs, the first time in 24 years a MLB starter did this, and being the only pitcher in the history of baseball to pitch a no-hitter, start a World Series game, be on the All-Star team, and named Rookie of the Year in two first seasons.  A Justin Verlander rookie card is easy to find through auction sites  and other online websites.
