Babe Ruth signs New York Yankees contract...



Item # 677698

March 06, 1922

THE DAY, New London, Connecticut, March 6, 1922 

* Babe Ruth signs contract
* New York Yankees baseball
* Highest paid baseball player


The top of page 9 has a nice banner heading: "Bambino Puts Name to Long Contact With Yankees. Home Run Slugger Signs for Five Years" with subheads and photo of Ruth. Interesting that the contract included an extra $500 for each home run. Was this one the factors why he hit so many.
Complete with 12 pages, some some binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
