    Description

    1910-11 M116 Sporting Life Walter Johnson PSA NM-MT 8. Johnson was a tall and unassuming sight on the mound, belying his dominating game. His 3,500+ strikeouts and 417 victories ranks the Big Train in some rare company. When Walter Johnson appears in a tobacco or candy card promotion, he is always among the key subjects pursued by passionate card enthusiasts, as much now as he assuredly was back in the day. He is without a doubt a key name in the M116 Sporting Life series, his card solid in its ranking high within the top 10 from the massive close to 300-card promotion. The offered example has every qualification sure to entice and satisfy the most condition-conscious hobbyist. Spectacular image clarity and the cleanest of surfaces (with the exception of a stray ink spot on the reverse) provide a visual power that meets if not exceeds this card's impressive grade. It is possible that slight touching on the bottom corner tips is all that keeps this example from being closer to the top of the population charts. Graded PSA NM-MT 8, this card is one of seven rated NM-MT with four recorded higher but that sure could suggest a resubmission. Any M116 description is complete without a salute to the masterful portrait rendering of the "Big Train" by famed photographer Carl Horner.
