LOS ANGELES TIMES, June 28, 1980

* Jerry Reuss pitches no-hitter
* Los Angeles Dodgers baseball
* Best title to be had ? - rare

The top of the front page of the sport's section has a nice banner headline: "Reuss Rolls and the Giants Come Up With a Big Zero" with subhead: "Error Deprives Dodger Pitcher of a Perfect Game in 8-0 Win" and two photos of Reuss. (see) Box scores on page 12 of this section. Great to have in this Los Angeles publication, Very rare as such.
Complete with 60+ pages, nice condition.

wikipedia notes: In 1980 Reuss had one of the best seasons of his career with 18 wins and only six losses, and leading the majors in shutouts with six; he also threw a no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants on June 27, striking out only 2 batters, narrowly missing a perfect game due to a throwing error in the first inning by shortstop Bill Russell; Reuss's no-hitter is just one of ten in baseball history in which a pitcher did not walk or hit a batter, but whose perfect game bid was foiled by a fielding error. Reuss finished second behind Steve Carlton in the running for the Cy Young Award, and won Sporting News Comeback Player of the Year Award.
