Debut of the NBA... 1st ever pro basketball game in Chicago...



Item # 659034

November 03, 1946

CHICAGO SUNDAY TRIBUNE, November 3, 1946 

* 2nd ever NBA basketball game
* Chicago Stags 1st game
* Historic report


Page 4of section 2 has a somewhat discrete report with a one column heading: "Stags Win 1st Start in New Basket League" (see) This was actually the 2nd ever NBA game played (night before) and the very 1st in Chicago. Terrific to have this in a Chicago publication. Very rare as such. A historic report marking the league's humble beginning.
Thirty plus pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
