Original NEA news photo capturing Walter Johnson being honored at an unspecified pregame ceremony in the 1920s. Certified as an original Type 1 news photo by PSA/DNA. Johnson is seen here sitting on the front fender of a car that is decorated with floral arrangements. An NEA credit stamp appears on the reverse. Although no year is listed, the style of the Washington Senators road uniform worn by Johnson here (solid, no pinstripes, with "W" on the sleeves) dates to the four-year period 1922-1925. The NEA stamp on the reverse also dates to the 1920s, corroborating that narrow time period. The photo (8 x 10 inches) displays a light crease along the base and paper/adhesive residue on the reverse. In Excellent condition overall. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
