Detailed description on our website.

The second coming of the Washington Senators redefined the meaning of futility, averaging ninety losses per season during their eleven year stay in DC. Nevertheless their troubled fans were in an uproar when they lost their second baseball franchise to Texas. Recall these loveable losers with this collection of 1960s Senators opening day souvenirs.


Former president Lyndon B. Johnson shows his good ol’ boy side in a series of (3) news service photos that average (EX) in quality with: 4/13/64 8x10 black & white ready to put some mustard on the ceremonial first pitch of the 1964 season; 7x9 b&w chowing down on a hot dog at the same 4/13/64 season opener; and 8x10 color 4/13/64 crowd scene with LBJ, Hubert H. Humphrey and other dignitaries at center


Also present are (3) “opening day” programs and (2) corresponding ticket stubs with:


1964 Program and stub combination, program is scored vs. the Los Angeles Angels and presents EX-MT with deference to various pen notations and unobtrusive staple holes, stub is very solid (EX-MT), also comes with stapled parking passes (EX)


1967 Program only scored vs. the New York Yankees, shows EX details with deference to light stains and pen notations
