Item # 668818
December 28, 1938
NEW YORK TIMES, December 28, 1938
* Jimmie Foxx wins batting title
* Boston Red Sox - American League
A seven column headline on the sports section reports: "American League Batting Laurels Captured by Foxx of the Red Sox" with subheads: "Foxx Topped List With Mark Of .349" "New High In Home Runs" and more. Also a nice two column photo of Jimmie Foxx.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Very nice condition.
