SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, July 16, 1941
* Joe DiMaggio's hitting streak nears the end
* New York Yankees - Major league baseball
* From his hometown publication (rare as such)
The top of the front page of the sports section (page 17) has a heading: "Still Going; DI MAG SINGLES AND DOUBLES" with the #"55!" with a black border and related photo. (see) The top of 2 of this section has a three column headline: "JOE DI MAGGIO HITS TWICE AS YANKEE POWER FALLS ON CHICAGO SOX, 5 TO 4" with box scores. DiMaggio would extend his hitting streak to just one more game (56), where it would end. Nice to have this from his hometown.
Complete with 24 pages, a few small tape mends at unrelated areas, some spine wear with some small binding holes, small address label on the front page, generally in good condition.
