    Description

    1925 Exhibits Walter Johnson with Signed Autograph, PSA/DNA Mint 9. It's one of the finest autographed relics from the mighty Big Train ever to cross our desks here at Heritage Auctions, a statement we can defend on numerous fronts. We'll begin with the autograph itself, a thundering black fountain pen ink beauty that rightly earns a Mint 9 assessment from the strict graders as PSA/DNA. Next, we'd report that Johnson signatures are almost never seen on trading cards, that medium having become a favorite among autograph collectors well after the legendary hurler's 1946 passing. And, finally, the 1925 vintage of this rare Exhibit card finds the long-suffering Washington Senators during their all-too-brief age of glory, having won the World and American League Championships in 1924 and 1925 respectively.

    Some light toning and typical edge and corner wear are noted only in the interest of full disclosure, doing nothing to detract from the world class aesthetics. Quite possibly the finest Walter Johnson signed trading card on Earth. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Mint 9.
