DiMaggio's hitting streak reaches 56 games...



Item # 658496

July 17, 1941

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, July 17, 1941.
 
* Joe MiMaggio - New Yor Yankees
* 56th game hitting streak report (final)
 

The top of page 19 has a one column heading: "IT'S 56 FOR JOE AS YANKS BEAT INDIANS" with subhead and box scores. (see) The hitting streak would stop the following game making this a very historic issue in baseball. Many believe this to be the most difficult record to top in sports. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Complete with all 30m pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
