Early Babe Ruth Boston Red Sox 1 Year Contract Signing 1918 New York Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 374172488162

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 15, 1918 * Early Babe Ruth (pre-fame) * Boston Red Sox contract signing * Major league baseball - MLB This 24 page newspaper has a very small & discrete heading in the sport's section (page 15): "Babe Ruth Signs Contract". See photo for the very brief report on Ruth re-signing with the Boston Red Sox for the 1918 baseball season. Interesting that his signing received such a small mention considering his eventual prominence. Other news of the day, sports and advertisements are present as well. Light browning with a little margin wear and chipping, but otherwise good - especially for the period. However, the issue should be handled with care.

eBay Fixed Price Item # 374158359840

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: UNITED STATES CATHOLIC INTELLIGENCER, Boston, Jan. 27, 1832  * Large masthead with a heraldic eagle This rather rare title lasted for just one year, having begun in October, 1831 and ending in September, 1832. The issue is a "vol. III" issue as this publication was preceded by one titled "Jesuit, or Catholic Sentinel" and they kept the same volume numbering. It was also curiously superseded by the same title as well.
