The last before a 50-year Philly drought...
Athletics win World Series title in 1930 (5 issues)...
Item # 628724
October 8, 1930
THE BETHLEHEM GLOBE-TIMES, Pennsylvania, October 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 1929 (5 issues)
* Philadelphia Athletics vs. St. Louis Cardinals
* Athletics win 1930 World Series
* Lefty Grove, George Earnshaw, Jimmie Foxx, Connie Mack...
This is a 5-issue set which includes front-page reports of all Philadelphia Athletics' victories, along with one of St. Louis' two wins. Only game 4 is not present. The front page of each issue has graphic same-day reporting - being somewhat unusual but possible due to Bethlehem's close proximity to Philadelphia. It would be 50 years before another baseball title would come to Philadelphia.
While all newspapers from the set are believed to be complete and in good condition, the game coverage has been verified to be complete and in very good condition.
Note: If purchasing a storage portfolio or folder, at least two will be needed to contain all five issues.
