* Babe Ruth NL debut
* Boston Braves
* MLB baseball
The front page of section 2 (sports) has a one column heading: "Ruth's Homer And Single Win For Braves, 4-2" with small photo of Ruth crossing home plate. This game was notable as it was Babe Ruth's National League debut as member of the Boston Braves. He would account for all of the Braves runs that day.
Complete with all 36 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. In great condition as such, a few small binding holes at the blank spine.
