Babe Ruth ...



Item # 629414

January 4, 1929

THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 4, 1929

* Babe Ruth gymnasium workout
* New York Yankee to unfit to play ?
* Major league baseball off-season


The sport's section (page 16) has a rare article re. Babe Ruth working out in a gym with a two column heading: "Ruth Starts Workouts in Gymnasium; Weighs 2341/2 but Seems in Fine Form" with subhead. (see) Such reports are probably only found in New York City papers.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 52 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. A few binding slits along the spine, nice condition.
