On Yankees winning the 1928 World Series, led by Babe Ruth...



Item # 626103

October 11, 1928

NEW YORK TIMES, October 11, 1928 

* New York Yankees & Babe Ruth
* World Series of baseball champions
* Welcome home celebration


The top of the front page has a two column heading: "Smith Greets Babe Ruth on Homecoming; Calls Him 'Boss of the Youth of America'" The sport's section (page 20) has a banner headline: "Ruth and Other Yanks Get Royal Welcome on Return From World's Series Triumph" with many subheads. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially on this topic.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 56 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.
