Cy Young Winners is an insert set in 2005 Leaf. The 15-card set features Cy Young award winners from the origins of the award to current winners. There have obviously been many more than just fifteen pitchers to have won the Cy Young, but the list of players selected is difficult to argue with. Greg Maddux and Randy Johnson both won 3 Cy Youngs in a row. Bob Gibson, Steve Carlton, and Tom Seaver were also multi-year winners and of course Roger Clemens won seven! Eric Gagne and Rollie Fingers are interesting additions - two relievers who are more famous for their physical appearance - Gagne and his goggles, Fingers and his 'stache. But they are more famous than some of the other relief pitcher winners (Steve Bedrosian, Mark Davis, Willie Hernandez?).

The set is paralleled by a Gold set that was serial numbered to 350 and a Die Cut set serial numbered to 100.
