Early Joe DiMaggio Yankees contract...
Item # 624381
January 18, 1938
THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 18, 1938
* Early Joe DiMaggio contract dispute
* New York Yankees - Yanks
* MLB baseball
The sport's section (page 17) has a banner headline: "DiMaggio Wants Big Increase but Withholds Demand Till Yanks Make Offer" with subheads and photo of DiMaggio. (see) A nice report on DiMaggio's upcoming contract after just two seasons with the New York Yankees. He wouldn't be nicknamed the "Yankee Clipper" until 1939. Probably only reported in a NYC publication. (rare as such)
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Very nice condition.
