Item # 647948

October 08, 1925

NEW YORK TIMES, Oct. 8, 1925 

* Christy Mathewson death (1st report)
* New York Giants pitcher
* MLB baseball

Near the top of the front page are one column heads announcing that: "CHRISTY MATHEWSON DIES UNEXPECTEDLY" "End Comes at Saranac Lake From Tuberculous Pneumonia--Had Long Previous Illness" "Idol Of Baseball World" "Served With Distinction in thee World War--Tribute Is Planned at Series". The article carries over to an inside page where is included a photo of him. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication. Also lengthy reporting on game 1 of the 1925 World Series starting on the front page ans carrying over into the sport's section. Loads of text.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 56 pages, light toning, a little irregular along the spine, otherwise very nice.
