Great headline on the death of "Iron Horse" Lou Gehrig...



Item # 665812

June 03, 1941

NEW YORK WORLD-TELEGRAM, June 3, 1941

* Death of Lou Gehrig
* New York Yankees
* Nice headline for display


A terrific issue on the death of Lou Gehrig from the home of the New York Yankees
The top of page 23 has a six column headline: "Old Teammates in Tears Over Gehrig's Death" with various subheads and nice illustration of Gehrig crossing home plate with word "Home" (see) Reporting continues on page 24 with nice pictorial. Great to have in this more uncommon New York City publication.
Complete in 32 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, some small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
