June 10, 1985
LOS ANGELES TIMES, June 10-12, 1985 (3-issue set)
* The L.A. Lakers beat the Boston Celtics to win the NBA basketball title
* The Lakers finally bury the Garden Ghost
* Hometown (Los Angeles) newspaper
The win, the parade, the presentation: After decades of futility, the front page has: "Lakers Defeat Celtics for Title; Parade Tuesday", which tells of the Los Angeles Lakers defeating the Boston Celtics to win the NBA Championship. Also included are the issues from the following two days, one describing the parade, and the other presenting a jersey to President Ronald Reagan, the former governor of California who undoubtedly had a person interest in the outcome.
Great to have this notable coverage in a Los Angeles newspaper. Included are the issues from the 10th (first section only), the 11th (first and sports sections only), and the 12th (1st and sports sections only). Although the issues are incomplete, all described and photoed coverage is present, and more. Some browning at the folds, in overall good condition (see images for details).
