The sport's section (page 10) has a banner headline: "Tittle Sets Two Records as Colts Upset Football Yankees; Brooklyn Loses" with subheads that include: "Tittle Star Of Winners" "Gains 346 Yards on Passes and Is Responsible for Five Touchdowns, New Records" and more with stats. (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 26 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.
