Item # 676920

April 30, 1910

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, April 30, 1910

* Upcoming Jack Johnson vs. James J. Jeffries
* Heavyweight boxing championship bout
* Boxing's first "Fight of the Century"
* In training photos a few months prior

The front page of the sport's section (page 7) has a headline: "Jeffries Stops Heavy Training Stunts to Give Finny Tribe A Workoutl In Fine Condition" with subhead and 3 related photos of Jefferies in training. (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 12 pages, two small library stamps within the masthead, some small binding holes and minor wear along the spine, generally nice.
