This 60 page newspaper has a two column heading on the front page: "Ty Cobb, Baseball Great, Dies; Still Held 16 Big League Marks" with subhead and photo. Much more on page 21 with banner headline: "Cobb, Hailed as Greatest Player in History, Mourned by Baseball World" with subheads and photos. Too much text here to photograph all.
1st report coverage coverage on the death of baseball great, Ty Cobb. Nice to have in this famous NYC title.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Very nice condition.
