Walter Johnson's family puts items up for auction

In this photo taken Feb. 15, 2013, Carolyn Thomas, 90, daughter of Washington Senators’ pitching great Walter Johnson holds a photo of herself as an infant with her father during an interview in her home in Washington. The family is auctioning items including the personalized framed copy of Johnson's plaque from his Hall of Fame induction, a handwritten congratulatory letter from Ty Cobb, the "Notice to Player of Release or Transfer" signed by Senators owner Clark Griffith after Johnson's final season in 1927, and an engraved six-piece tea set celebrating the 20th anniversary of Johnson's signing with the team next weekend.
