THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 7, 1928

* Lou Gehrig signs for 3 years
* New York Yankees contract
* Best title to be had ?

The sport's section (page 9) has a one column heading: "YANKS SIGN GEHRIG TO 3-YEAR CONTRACT" with subheads and photo of Gehrig. (see) 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 34 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.
