    1942 Walter Johnson Handwritten Signed Letter. A mere four years before his death, Walter Johnson wrote this letter to a well-wisher who was looking for a little insight into the game. Johnson was brutally honest when he wrote a lady seeking information. "I am sorry I can't tell you what you wanted to know as all I know is what I have seen in the papers." The Big Train apologizes for being late in his response but his excuse seems plausible: "Sorry to have been late with this but have been real busy here on the farm." Johnson closes with a perfect signature. The handwritten letter/signature are 9/10 to 10/10 throughout. The page is on Johnson's personal stationery and has regular mailing marks. The reverse has remnants of where is was applied to a photo album. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
