1923 Unique photograph of Hall of Famer Walter Johnson in pitching formation that was THE photo used to make the cover of the July 1923 issue of Baseball Magazine! The photo is stamped on the back from the 1996 sale of the Baseball Magazine archives and comes with a copy of the magazine as well, this is the actual image that the magazine used to come up with the cover for the issue and as such this is a unique piece of Johnson history that is being offered for the first time since 1996! Photo was issued by Pacific and Atlantic and stamped on the back and remains in quite nice condition overall while the magazine itself displays well with the front cover being loose. A powerful combination which is one of the best images of Johnson we have ever seen!
