(see) First report coverage on Joe DiMaggio's famous hitting streak making the 49th game mark. He would end up with 56 games in a row. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially on this topic.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 34 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.
