1910's Walter Johnson Original News Photograph by Charles Conlon, PSA/DNA Type 1. "The Big Train" was in the prime of his career when this original type one photograph was taken. The image captures Walter Johnson in a follow-through motion, sized at 5.5x8." Johnson, rated by many as the greatest pitcher ever, put together a string of consecutive seasons in the 1910's that speaks to his utter dominance: 33 wins and a 1.39 ERA in 1912, followed by 36 wins, 28 wins, 27 wins, 25 wins and three more consecutive 20+ win seasons, all but one with an ERA under 2.00. In total, Johnson captured three pitching Triple Crowns, ending with 417 wins, a 2.17 ERA and 3,509 strikeouts.

    Verso of photo exhibits four corners of adhesive with black scrapbook paper adhered to them, a PSA/DNA sticker, and the note "Walter Johnson - Washington" in pencil. Making this photograph all the more desirable is the attribution to famed sports photographer Charles Conlon. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
