During Walter Johnson’s magnificent career, road games at St. Louis’ Sportsman’s Park marked the closest he got to his native Kansas. Portrayed at that venue in May, 1913, the 25-year-old Johnson is the subject of this original sepia-toned photograph. Encapsulated and assessed “Authentic” by BVG, this unevenly trimmed Type I photo depicts “The Big Train” loosening up in his Senators road apparel. From the Walter Johnson Estate, this Deadball Era relic has an independent photographer’s stamping on the reverse.
