The Finest PSA Graded
1916 Herpolsheimer
Walter Johnson

Spring 2012 Auction
Lot Number: 80
1916 Herpolsheimer Co. # 91
Walter Johnson
Graded by PSA as NM 7

Realized Price: $6,360

This card of Hall-of-Fame pitching legend Walter Johnson is identical to the one issued as part of the 1916 M101-4 set, except that the reverse of the card features advertising for "Herpolsheimer Co.," a Grand Rapids, Michigan clothier. This M101-4 "ad back variety" is much scarcer than the standard blank-back issue.

The offered example is a premium quality NM 7 copy. It is well-centered with excellent surface quality, a bold well-contrasted image of Johnson, and outstanding original gloss. The current population report lists this as the only example certified by PSA, in any grade.
