DiMaggio's hitting streak ends at 56 games...



Item # 659969

July 18, 1941

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, July 18, 1941.
 
* Joe MiMaggio - New York Yankees
* Historic game hitting streak ends w/ 56
 

The front page of section 2 (sports) has a five column headline: "INDIANS STOP DI MAGGIO AT 56" with subheads that include: "WALK, 3 INFIELD OUTS HALT JOE; YANKS WIN, 4-3" and more with box scores. Photo of DiMaggio on page 21 with heading: "The Pressure Is Off" 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 30 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
