Available to adoring fans in Griffith Stadium, this photo tribute to the mighty Walter Johnson poses him in the classic public relations image that we know so well. It's a celluloid souvenir pin that measures 1-1/4" in diameter, and it provides a natural background setting of the sanctums of his home stadium. Featuring the subject's simulated autograph (which is quite accurate) in the lower aspect, the pin was made by the not-so-familiar James Spencer & Co. whose identity is declared on the paper insert in the reverse. We report that this particular pin has an itty-bitty ding in the perimeter (at about 10:00), yet it remains in Near Mint condition.
