Rare sporting newspaper...



Item # 668246

March 19, 1892

SPORTING ITEM, Philadelphia, March 19, 1892  A quite rare title, the first we have seen and this is the vol. 1 #7 issue. The Library of Congress has no record of it, and Gregory's "Union List of American Newspapers" has no mention of this title. The masthead is large & features vignettes of many sports.
A folio size, 8 page newspaper totally focused on the sporting world from baseball to water polo to boxing to shooting, to billiards to bicycling and everything in between.  Several of the column heads have graphics.
Never bound nor trimmed, several discrete archival mends at folds & margins, good condition.

Item from Catalog 297 (released for August, 2020)...
