Rare pair of issues from the Private Collection...
This Item Is Not For Sale
Item # 553407
September 22, 1927
PUBLIX OPINION, New York, September 22, 1927 An interesting pair of newspapers done in advance of the Gene Tunney - Jack Dempsey fight, ready to "hit the streets" regardless of who won. The text reads generically enough (but still with inaccuracies) to satisfy the average reader, or at least they thought. Perhaps they didn't really care.
Tunney was the winner of this controversial "long count" fight. Apparently the publisher put both editions into the bound volume for posterity's sake, which then ended up in our collection. Not for Sale.
