The front page of section 2 (sports) has a two column heading: "Ty Cobb Is Voted No. 1 in Baseball's Hall of Fame" with photo of Cobb. (see) A historic first report on the inaugural baseball hall of fame inductions which included the big names in the sport up until that time. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Complete with all 32 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. In great condition as such, a few small binding holes at the spine.
