August 12, 1912

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Aug. 12, 1912

* Ty Cobb "The Georgia Peach" stabbed
* Fights with 3 assailants trying to rob him
* Detroit Tigers MLB baseball icon

The front page has a one column heading: "TY COBB STABBED IN BACK WHEN HELD UP BY THREE MEN" 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 18 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, a little irregular along the spine, generally nice.
