    Circa 1928 Walter Johnson Single Signed & Inscribed Baseball. The Big Train inscribed and signed this Official International League (J.C. Toole) baseball "To Robert McBride From Walter Johnson" on the panel just above the league stamping in 5/10 steel-tip black fountain pen. The ball is moderately toned but the stampings remain bold and legible.

    Robert McBride was the nephew of George McBride who was Johnson's teammate on the Washington Senators from 1908-20. The ball was originally obtained from the McBride family. Walter Johnson singles are fairly rare and are thus highly prized by collectors so bid accordingly. Full LOA from Beckett Authentication Services. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
