Walter Johnson for Congress Pin and a Bonus.

Lot 380. Walter Johnson for Congress Pin and a Bonus. Legendary Washington Senators’ pitcher Walter Johnson was in the Baseball Hall of Fame’s inaugural class in 1936 – with Ty Cobb, Christy Mathewson, Babe Ruth and Honus Wagner. He was also a lifelong Republican and friend of President Calvin Coolidge. After his playing career ended, Johnson settled down in Germantown, Md. In 1940 he ran for a congressional seat in Maryland’s 6th district. He lost to the incumbent Democrat by a 53% to 47% margin. This 1” in diameter pin features text on the top that reads “Primary May 6.” Johnson’s facsimile signature appears in the center of the pin, and “For Congress” is at the bottom. The paper insert on the back remains intact and in place. G. Accompanying this pin are two different Helmar Beer Hall of Fame bottle caps, apparently from the early 2000s, with illustrations of Johnson. One is #18, and the other, #19; both are vg-ex. Also, a $5 Bally’s chip depicting Johnson and honoring the inaugural (1936) Baseball Hall of Fame class. Nm. Winning Bid $113.
