Sandy Koufax wins his first Cy Young Award...
Item # 672270
October 25, 1963
NEW YORK TIMES, October 25, 1963 The sport's section (page 20) has a one column head: "KOUFAX RECEIVES CY YOUNG AWARD" with subhead. A nice report on Los Angeles Dodger pitcher Sandy Koufax winning the first of his three Cy Young awards.
Koufax is also remembered as one of the outstanding Jewish athletes in American sports. His decision not to pitch Game 1 of the 1965 World Series because it fell on Yom Kippur garnered national attention as an example of conflict between professional pressures and personal beliefs.
Also, a banner headline on the same page: "Yankees Sign Berra to Manage for One Year at $35,000, a Cut of $10,000" with subheads and two related photos. The Yankees would win the World Series in his first and only year as manager of the Yanks in 1964.
Complete in 64 pages, nice condition.
