1910 Jack Johnson vs. James J. Jeffries...



Item # 676415

July 05, 1910

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, July 5, 1910

* Jack Johnson vs. James J. Jeffries
* Heavyweight boxing championship bout
* Boxing's first "Fight of the Century"


The top of the front page has a two column headline: "JOHNSON, JUBILANT, IS ON WAY EAST; JEFFRIES IS BROKEN HEARTED MAN" with subhead. (see) Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 10 pages, two small library stamps within the masthead, some small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
