Lot # 13: 1909 T204 Ramly Walter Johnson PSA 5 EX

Price: $40,000.00

Status: Available


Arguably the greatest pitcher of the twentieth century, Walter Johnson is by far the all time leader in shutouts with 110 and second behind only Cy Young in all time wins with 417. He and Young are the only pitchers ever to win 400 games. He was the leader in strikeouts a Major League Record 12 times and was the only player in the 3000 strike out club for over 50 years until Bob Gibson joined him in 1974. Well deserving, Johnson was elected one of the first 5 inductees into the Baseball Hall of Fame along with Ruth, Cobb, Mathewson and Wagner. Also, in 1999, "The Big Train" was voted by The Sporting News # 4 on the 100 Greatest Baseball Players of all time. We, at Memory Lane, have sold numerous Johnson rookies over the last decade and this example is by far one of the nicest we have had the privilege to offer. A mini-masterpiece is created with the famous Carl Horner black and white striking cameo image surrounded by an ornate embossed gold filigree design. To find a Ramly of this quality is truly amazing considering they are notoriously condition sensitive. A true find for the advanced Ramly collector, for those collecting significant rookie cards, or for a top collector who just wants one of the best baseball cards the hobby has to offer.
