    Description

    Circa 1940 Walter Johnson Single Signed Baseball. Only Cy Young stands higher on the career victories podium than the Big Train, who properly joined Young as a member of the inaugural Hall of Fame induction class of 1939. But when it comes to rarity of single signed baseballs, Johnson has Young beaten quite handily, and many elite collections lack this essential entry. This is a remarkably well preserved specimen, ready to solve that problem for one collector with style. The black fountain pen sweet spot signature rates a conservative 8/10 in the iconic right-hander's distinctive script. Baseball is a charming promotional model, announcing "Compliments of Little Tavern Shops, Inc., Famous for 5¢ Hamburgers." Certainly among the finest known examples, with original box. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
