Babe Ruth returns from World barnstorming tour...



Item # 670693

February 21, 1935

THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 21, 1935

* Babe Ruth & all stars return home
* World barnstorming tour - Japan


Page 25 has a banner headline: "Return From World Tour Fins Babe Ruth Hopeful of Remaining in Baseball" with subhead and nice photo with wife and daughter. (see) Text includes interview excerpts from Ruth and his wife as well. Ruth would join the Boston Braves about a week later. Probably only found in a NYC publication. Rare as such.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 42 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. Nice condition.
