John Mahaffey wins the PGA Championship...
The death of Pope Paul VI...
Item # 637466
August 7, 1978
THE PHILADELPHIA ENQUIRER, Phila., Pennsylvania, August 7, 1978
* Pope Paul VI dies after having heart attack
The front page has a full banner heading: "Pope Paul Is Dead", with a large photo. Subheads include: "Suffers heart attack" and "How Pope's Successor will be chosen". Inside pages include additional coverage and photos. The front of the Sports Section has: "Mahaffey takes PGA in playoff", with a large photo. Additional coverage is also found on inside pages. Nice to have John Mahaffey's Oakmont, PA victory in a newspaper from the same state.
The issue appears to be complete in 3 sections, and is in overall good condition with only minor browning at the mid-fold (see images).
