A truly special piece, offered is a truly striking (20x12) image of the World Champion 1924 Washington Senators baseball team. This original sepia photograph taken by the Washington photo Service whose credit appears in the lower right corner pictures the team in formal pose with none other than the Big Train Walter Johnson seated center in the front row. Obvious flaws visible on the piece include a few tears, creases, tack holes and on the lower left corner moderate paper loss. None however detract from the overall display value as the image maintains great clarity and is the first of this pose that we have ever seen of this historic Championship team. This is likely extremely rare as we could find no public sales of a large image from this team. The 1924 Senators are a very popular team among collectors as it was the only World Series title for Walter Johnson and the Washington franchise. Fresh to the hobby, a Senators or photo collector will really treasure this beautiful and evocative original photo. Framed to 26x14, we did not attempt to remove it from the frame.
