Item # 674533

May 03, 1939

THE NORWICH SUN, Connecticut, May 3, 1939

* Lou Gehrig's games played streak ends (1st report)
* New York Yankees - Major league baseball


The sports page has a two line, 2 column head: "Gehrig Benches Self--Bows Out After 2,130 Games In Row" with a nice article beginning: "For the first time since May 30, 1925, the New York Yankees played a major league baseball game yesterday without Lou Gehrig in the lineup..." with more.
Curiously, above the article is a photo of the next generation's star Yankee, headed "DiMaggio Nurses Wounded Leg" with text in the caption. Also a one column report: "Add 6 More Names To Hall of Fame At Cooperstown".
Complete in 8 pages, light browning, minor margin wear, otherwise in good condition.
