    Description

    1917 D-Unc Merchants Bakery Walter Johnson #87 SGC 20 Fair 1.5. Johnson may have been a tall and unassuming sight on the mound but when one hears the thump of the ball in the catchers glove and you didn't see it coming that impression disappears immediately. His 3,500+ strikeouts and 417 victories places the Big Train in the rarest of company. When Walter Johnson appears in a tobacco or candy card promotion, he is always among the key subjects. His appearance is all the more enticing when the promotion is a largely unheard of entry like the Merchants Bakery cards of 1917. The card is basically a nice VG-EX card with some consistent corner wear, damage affecting the left border where you see surface being pulled up but not missing is the lone element explaining the SGC 20 Fair 1.5 assessment. This is the only example graded to date by SGC. PSA has yet to review their first Merchants Bakery card.
