Outstanding original photograph of Walter Johnson, removed from Johnson's personal scrapbook.  Measuring approximately 5 1/2" x 3 1/2", the photo was taken at Fenway Park in 1920, and can be dated either to Opening Day on April 15 or to July 1, the day of Johnson's only no-hitter.  The socks date the photo to 1920, Johnson having only pitched in Fenway on those two dates that season.  In outstanding condition with light wear, a photo of historical significance regardless of which of the two dates from which the photo originates.  Authenticated and encapsulated by Beckett.
