http://m.ebay.com/itm/1904-MO-MISSOURI-CHAMPIONS-CABINET-CARD-WITH-WALTER-JOHNSON-PICTURED-/131729006099?nav=SEARCH I see one of the players who kind of looks like him but I'm not sure.

Johnson lived in California in 1904. Doubt he traveled back east to play a little ball at age 16 or 17. In fact I don't think he ever lived in Missouri, grew up in Kansas and then went west in 1902 with the family.

The players names are printed on the bottom - no Johnson.

That photo is more likely to have Joe Jackson in it.

The following is a question in the item description. I believe the answer says it all.....

Q: Hi, Just a quick question how do you know it's Johnson in the photo 100%? Great piece either way but was just wondering. Thanks, Brad
A: After extensive all around research , in my opinion , it is him. It also has a Weisner in it.

he MUST be an expert....

Exactly! How did the seller not see or not think anybody else could read!

It took about thirty seconds of internet research to figure out this is the 1904 Chillicothe Athletics, managed by William Eylenburg (who was the local pastor).
