    Description

    1917 H801-8 Boston Store Walter Johnson #87 PSA EX 5. Two things are absolutely true , Walter Johnson, the Washington Senators' mound master, stands shoulder to shoulder next to the names Cobb, Wagner, Ruth and Jackson and this H801-8 is one of his rarest card collectibles. So accomplished was his career that he was one of the first players to be inducted into Baseball's Hall of Fame. The lanky farmboy was somehow able to generate a ninety-nine miles per hour fastball, with a smooth side-armed motion that baffled and certainly terrified opposing batters. To date, PSA has graded hundreds of cards that bare his name but so far only three (total) cards of #87 from the H801-8 Boston Store card #87 have been submitted. Graded PSA EX 5, this is the second highest graded example but looks like it should be the best. Only some slight roughness along the top edge on the reverse seems to fully account for the final assessment. With no shortage of aesthetic appeal, this scarcity deserves high ranking in any vintage collection.
