NEW YORK TIMES, March 17, 1932
* Babe Ruth signs 1 year contract

* Major League baseball MLB
* Best title to be had ?
The sport's section (page 26) has a banner headline: "Ruth Signs One-Year Contract With Yankees Calling for Salary of $75,000" with subheads and a nice photo of Babe Ruth. 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 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. Nice condition.
