Babe Ruth Shows Off New Wife...

Item # 649724

April 19, 1929

NEW YORK TIMES, April 19, 1929

* Babe Ruth shows off new wife
* Lou Gehrig - New York Yankees
* Opening day home runs

The sport's section (page 18) has a banner headline: "Ruth and Gehrig Hit Homers as Yanks win Opener, 7-3" with subheads and 2 related photos, one showing Babe Ruth with his new wife and mother-in-law. First report coverage on opening day at Yankee Stadium for the 1929 baseball season. Great to have in this title.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 52 pages, irregular along the spine, otherwise nice.
