Listing Details

Offered is a simply outstanding Walter Johnson letter. An ALS that is dated September 21, 1933, this is on pristine and very attractive Cleveland Indians letterhead. Written as the Indians manager, the remarkable content reads as follows: Managing a baseball team isn't greatly different from managing a business. It is largely a job of getting every one to play out the string, taking nothing for granted until the last man is out. Signed Walter Johnson in flawless period fountain pen, this is a superb signature on a great letter. Walter Johnson letters from this era are quite scarce and desirable, the winning bidder will be adding a real treasure to their collection. Please note Walter Johnson died in 1946 at a relatively young age, his 3x5s can sell for $1,500, this should trade for several multiples of a simple 3x5 signature. JSA LOA (full).
