1918 Washington Senators Photo Collection (13) - Direct Johnson Family Provenance!
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $533
Collection of thirteen original photos, each capturing a single member of the 1918 Washington Senators. Each of these photos originates directly from a Johnson family member and has been in the family's possession since 1918. Each photo has been individually mounted onto an album page (one photo on each side of a page), with the exception of one instance where two photos are mounted together on the same side of a page. Nine of the players have been identified in vintage blue ink above their respective photo: Eddie Foster, Eddie Ainsmith, Jim Shaw, Howard Shanks (the photo is also signed by Shanks in blue fountain pen, with the signature grading "8"), Earl Yingling, Ray Morgan, Burt Shotton, Clyde Milan, and Patsy Gharrity. Sizes range from 5 x 8.5 inches to 8 x 10 inches, with the majority measuring approximately 6 x 10 inches. A few of the photos display slightly wavy borders, with one also displaying a ragged and torn top border (its top extended above the album page border, making it susceptible to damage). In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Total: 13 photos (each mounted to an album page). Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $533
