Extremely rare 1924 Oakland Tribune card of Walter Johnson.



Lot 82. Extremely rare 1924 Oakland Tribune card of Walter Johnson. Measured 4 3/4 x 3 1/4" and is blank backed. Attractive card shows Johnson in pitching motion. The Senators were World Series Champs in 1924 which may partially account for the card. The Standard Catalog suggests that Johnson was considering buying the Oakland Club of the PCL at that time. A different card of Johnson was issued by the Tribune 1925. Research could only provide me with one other known copy of the card and noted PCL collectors have never seen it. One of the rarest types we've ever offered and in ex-mt condition.
Winning Bid $5,576.
