The sport's section (page 23) has a banner headline: "Two Philadelphia Players Judged Most Valuable in Major Leagues During 1932" with subheads that include: "KLEIN AND FOXX WIN PLAYER AWARDS" "Gehrig Again Runner-Up" and more with photos of Klein and Foxx. (see) First report coverage on Jimmie Foxx and Chuck Klein winning the MVP award for the 1932 baseball season. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 42 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.
