"BIG" BIG TRAIN!!! The T206 Walter Johnson ‘Portrait' tobacco card is one of the most popular HOF T206s in the hobby. Especially considering that no major "E" cards or Bread cards, inexplicably, were issued for Walter Johnson, his "T" cards are highly desirable with vintage collectors. Johnson's accomplishments are virtually insurmountable, explaining why most baseball experts nominate him as the greatest pitcher who ever lived. 417 lifetime wins, over 3,500 strikeouts, a lifetime 2.17 ERA, and an incredible 110 shutouts, certainly substantiate this statement. He succeeded the great Christy Mathewson as the game's consummate professional and was idolized by thousands of aspiring young ballplayers. The offered card is an absolute stunner. His portrait is a perfect masterpiece, easily comparable to any other PSA 8 in the hobby. All the borders are clean and centered nicely with the reverse just as nice. The corners are strong and the outer edging is sharp and this one has the Sweet Caporal back. One of the nicest T206s we have ever seen on "The Big Train".
