Long-since established as the ace of the Washington Senators mound corps, Hall of Famer Walter Johnson notched his 300th career triumph in 1920 at the age of 32. It was during that summer that this original black-and-white photograph was taken. Measuring 3-3/8 x 5” with a thin white border, the image shows Johnson in his Senators home apparel standing in foul territory. Encapsulated and assessed “Authentic” by BVG, this vintage Type I diamond heirloom offers a telling likeness of a dominating legend. There are mounting remnants on the reverse.
