October 28, 1909

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Oct. 28, 1909

* Jack Johnson vs. James J. Jeffries
* Heavyweight boxing championship bout
* Boxing's first "Fight of the Century"
* Meeting to set up the famous fight

The top of page 2 has a two column heading: "JOHNSON HOPES TO FIGHT JEFF IN NEAR FUTURE" with subhead and photo of each boxer. (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 8 pages, two small library stamps within the masthead, some small binding holes along the spine, small tape mend along top margin, generally nice.
