    Description

    Circa 1913 Walter Johnson Original Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1.
    Ty Cobb recalling the first time he saw Walter Johnson: "On August 2, 1907, I encountered the most threatening sight I ever saw in the ball field...He was a tall, shambling galoot of about twenty, with arms so long they hung far out of his sleeves, and with a sidearm delivery that looked unimpressive at first glance...The first time I faced him, I watched him take that easy windup. And then something went past me that made me flinch...We couldn't touch him...every one of us knew we'd met the most powerful arm ever turned loose in a ball park."

    The Big Train" was in the prime of his career when this original type one photograph was taken. Between 1912-16, he averaged 30-14 with 240 K's and a 1.55 ERA. In his MVP season of 1913, he went 36-7 with 243 K's and a 1.14 ERA to win the Triple Crown. The reverse has remnants of a photo and glue stains. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
