With an 11-8 record and 2.91 earned run average during the 1954 season for a second division club, Johnny Bear Tracks Schmitz was undoubtedly the “ace” for the Washington Senators. The durable pitcher is portrayed on the offered 1953-54 Briggs Meats type card. This regional issue is accentuated by traces of the original red bordering along three edges. Despite a pair of horizontal creases and expected hot dog grease markings on both the surface and reverse, this evenly cut sample is still very presentable.
