Walter "The Big Train" Johnson (d.1946) was so called because his pitches were a blur that could only be compared to a passing locomotive. This 1932 letter addressed to "T.D. Cole" on Washington Baseball Club stationary was written by Johnson and features bold ("9") potency handwriting throughout. The letter itself has moderate toning/staining scattered throughout easily offset by the interesting content it contains related to Johnson's hopes for the upcoming season. Signed "Walter Johnson" at the very end (also "9"); comes with original May 2, 1932 mailing envelope in (FR) condition with Johnson's handwriting on front. Full photo LOA from JSA. More on website

Dear Mr. Cole,
Many thanks for your letter. I believe we have a good ball club and expect to be near the top at least all the way.
Will be glad to see you when we go to Cincinnati.
