Hank Aaron ties and breaks the home run record...

Item # 671233

April 09, 1974

DAILY NEWS, New York, April 5 and 9, 1974 

* Hank Aaron home run #715
* Breaks Babe Ruth's record
* Atlanta Braves - MLB baseball

A terrific pair of issues on one of the more historic events in Major League Baseball.
The issue of the 5th announces: "AARON HITS 714, TIES THE BABE" with photo and subhead. Also a nice bkpg. montage headed: "ONE MORE TO GO
The issue of the 9th proclaims: "715!" "HENRY DOES IT" "Breaks Ruth's Home Run Record" with the iconic photo of Hank Aaron following this career home run #715 at the Atlanta stadium. More photos in the centerfold and back page.
Tabloid-size, both issues are complete in 108 and 80 pages respectively, minor wear at the margins with a few discrete archival mends almost unnoticeable. Great to display these issues side-by-side.
