1924 and 1925 Oakland Tribune Walter Johnson Overview
A rare card of Hall of Famer Walter Johnson was produced in 1924 by the Oakland Tribune. To date, no other cards in the set are known. A second Johnson card was printed by the publication in 1925.
The 1924 card features a blue-tinted image of WaJo throwing the ball. It includes his replica signature with the inscription, ‘Sincerely Yours.’ At the bottom, the card also says ‘Washington Senators’ and ‘World Series Champions 1924 – compliments of Oakland Tribune.’
This page indicates a 1925 card was made but to date, I have not seen it.
