Description

    1925 Walter Johnson Day Panoramic Photograph from Johnson Estate. The Big Train takes center stage of this fine panorama, likely the only one of its kind in existence, and deriving directly from the estate of the hard-throwing Hall of Famer. Just above a caption reading "Johnson Day, Washington, D.C., June 18, 1925, the aging legend poses holding a presentational certificate. He is flanked on his right by the defending World Champion Senators, and on his left by the visiting St. Louis Browns, who would put a mild damper on the proceedings by managing a nine to six victory over the home team. Behind the two teams throngs of men is suits and straw hats and women in bright dresses mill about in the stands, each in fine, crisp focus. The photo, having resided since its birth in the original oak frame, shows only the faintest hint of waves in its surface, apparent only at extreme angles. To all but the most critical viewer, the piece resonates with a NRMT appearance. Complete framed dimensions are 11x41". Accompanying the lot will be a letter of provenance from the former husband of Johnson's granddaughter.
