Christy Mathewson and Mordecai Brown...



Item # 584104

September 5, 1916

SPRINGFIELD REPUBLICAN, Massachusetts, September 5, 1916

* Christy Mathewson vs. Mordecai Brown
* Greatest pitching rivalry (last time)


This 16 page newspaper has small one column headings on page 11: "Matty Beats Brown" and  "So Reds Get Even Break With Chicago" with box scores (see photos). This was the last game Christy Mathewson would face Mordecai Brown on the baseball field. Some consider this the greatest pitching rivalry in Major League History.

Other news of the day. Light browning, a little margin wear, otherwise good.
