Description

A fan gesture of leaving fresh apples at the ballpark prompted Walter Johnson (d.1946) to write the offered signed handwritten letter on Senators letterhead. The “Thank You” letter was penned with a black steel-tip fountain pen. The 3” script of the charter Hall of Fame inductee is executed with (“8-9”) precision. Despite compacting folds tracing through the document including the “t” and “e” of Johnson’s given name, the overall presentation of the script is not compromised. Full photo LOA from PSA/DNA. More on our website.

The letter reads in full:

Mr. E.M. Hickman
416 Aspen St. N.W
Washington D.C.

Dear Mr. Hickman:
I want to thank you for the wonderful apples you left at the ball park for me. They are fine and we have enjoyed them so much. It was awfully nice of you and I sure appreciate your kindness.
I hope I will see you some time.

Very Sincerely
Walter Johnson
