Tim Lincecum Bio- Lincecum played varsity in high school, winning State Player of the Year, followed by playing college ball and receiving the most prestigious honor, the Golden Spike Award.  Having developed a 93 MPH fastball, sharp breaking curveball, four-seam fastball, changeup, and slider, the Chicago Cubs drafted him to the MLB in 2003.  With the minors briefly, he made his professional debut in July 2006, and while he pitched just one inning, he also struck out all three batters.  His second showing resulted in striking out seven of eight batters.  Thanks to a great debut, he was bumped up to an A-team and one year later, ranked as the number one prospect by Baseball America.

He sat out much of 2007 due to an injury but in 2008, he was a cover feature for Sports Illustrated and chosen for his first All-Star game although illness kept him from playing.  However, upon return to the game, he struck out 13 batters in seven innings.  A few of his other achievements in MLB include being 2008 Starter of the Year, 2009 Sporting News’ NL Pitcher of the Year, two-time recipient of the Cy Young Award, three-time invitee to the NL All-Star game, and assisting his team to a 2010 World Series victory.  eBay and other online sites sell the Tim Lincecum rookie card and if pitching performance continues, the card could prove to be of serious value one day
