Item # 648027
March 3, 1927
THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 3, 1927
* Babe Ruth contract
* New York Yankees
* Record season ahead
* Best title to be had ?
The front page has a one column heading: "RUTH GETS $210,000 FOR 3 YEARS AS YANK" with subheads: "Closes Deal With Ruppert Soon After Arrival From Coast--Will Sign Tomorrow" "Demanded $100,000 A Year" "Home-Run Star, Satisfied With New Terms, Will Leave for Training Camp Saturday" with the text taking about half a column & carrying over to page 18 as well, where is found a chart headed: "Cobb, Speaker & Hornsby Among Other High-Paid Stars". Great to have in this famous NYC title. Rare as such.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 48 pages, irregular along the spine, otherwise very nice condition.
