And in making connections, I try my best to take those connections less seriously.

In that vein, I submit that the favorite Johnson for most of us on here is the one we own.

Don't get me started on tube socks.

Finally, a fellow with taste .

Johnson has tons of great looking cards, maybe more than any other great pitcher.

I am sure its just an oversight that it hasn't been mentioned yet, but many people say that Walt's nicest card can be found in the T207 set. It is basically a [modern] art piece, and looks [sorta] like him.

Another WaJo card with the same image as the T204, T206, and Rose PC is the M116 Sporting Life card, which I think can still be obtained at a lower cost than each of the other three (in comparable condition).

I'm generally not a fan of exhibits and oversized cards in general, but would certainly make an exception if I could find a signed copy. Great card!

A few in this thread I've never even seen before. Appreciate the suggestions!

Awesome t204 Ryan. Probably a little more than I want to spend at this time but I do plan to add one eventually, although perhaps in a slightly lower grade.

Mathewson is hurt by missing the photographic issues of the 1920's, and having basically the same cards as Johnson before that.

Mathewson Dark Cap > Any Wajo T206. There's my hot take for the day.

Johnson is not in most of the "E" card sets. Or "D" for that matter, is he? So not basically the same cards at all.

But to stay on point, I love so many of the Johnson cards shown here (and wish I had!) - but here is my one/only which I also love. The slightly oversized card, horizontal image and old timey font all work great for me

I thought about that after reading the comment and he really isn't in many E card sets. How nice would it have been to see an E93, 94, 97, and 98 Johnson in those sets.

And Johnson is in some sets where Mathewson is not -- Ramly and T207 come to mind. In any case I think it's not accurate to say that during the period of their overlap they had "basically the same cards."

Yes Christy has 3 or 4 poses or so in the E sets and Johnson has 1 or 2. Whether slight differences in the exact sets upends the “basically”, frankly, I don’t really care. They have a similar checklist of cards. You can be right and get me this time.

If I "got" you and not my intent, a rare event indeed.

So many great candidates...it's the T206 portrait for me.

I remembered Marty’s caramels as the E93 + the copy/pasted image they used for 30 sets. Forgot the E95 and E90 poses that give him a significant gap in caramels, though Johnson has others that Matty doesn’t, but similar cards. The Matty caramels are nicer than Johnson’s T207 Matty doesn't have…. I’ll pick the T3 for both of them as the best, but if it’s ignored then the T206 dark cap or the E93 Matty beat any Johnson in my book.

T205 Mathewson may be my favorite although love the ones you mention as well.

I think the only 5 Johnson E-cards prior to 1920 are the E91-C, E135, E145, E224, and E-300.

Matty has 14 but I may be missing some. E90-1, E91-A & B, E92 (5 backs), E95, E98, E101, E102, E105, E106, E107, E145, E224, and E-300.

I never realized that until the question was posted.

Johnson but not Mathewson is in the 1914 Fatima (T222). Mathewson but not Johnson is in the D304 issues.

Well I just made a deal with board member Don for this one. Some great suggestions in the thread, but I think this will fit well in my collection. Thanks Don!

When it comes to the E91 set, the E91A Matty gets the nod over the E91C Johnson, as the artwork of Matty's face is based upon his image, while the facial artwork for Johnson is based upon Rube Waddell's face.

I have never seen those e91 cards before. I'd hate to buy a Johnson that isn't even really Johnson.

Phil, Johnson is also in the 1910 E271 Darby Chocolates set and in the 1912 E-UNC Baseball Bats Candy set (as is Matty).
