Offered for your consideration this week is a  T206 Walter Johnson Portrait Washington SGC Authentic baseball tobacco card with an El Principe De Gales Back! Johnson played his entire 21-year career with the Washington Senators, where he won 417 games, and struck out over 3,500 batters. He won MVP honors twice, and led his team to a World Series championship in 1924. He currently ranks 2nd all time in wins, 9th all time in strikeouts, and is the all time leader in shutouts. Johnson was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936, and is a part of Major League Baseball’s All-Century & All-Time Teams. One of the most celebrated and dominating players in baseball history, Johnson established several pitching records, some of which remain unbroken. He remains by far the all-time career leader in shutouts with 110, second in wins with 417, and fourth in complete games with 531. He once held the career record in strikeouts with 3,508 and was the only player in the 3,000 strikeout club for over 50 years until Bob Gibson recorded his 3,000th strikeout in 1974. Johnson led the league in strikeouts a Major League record 12 times—one more than current strikeout leader Nolan Ryan—including a record eight consecutive seasons.
