October 01, 1927
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, Oct. 1, 1927 This issue reports one of the more notable events in baseball history: Babe Ruth's record-breaking 60th home run, a record which would stand until Roger Maris broke it in 1961.
The sports section has a nice banner headline: "RUTH'S 60TH HOMER SETS NEW RECORD" with subhead: "Babe Smashes Ball Out of Lot With Koenig On" "Long Wallop Beats Senators, 4 to 2" with nice reporting.
This is the complete sports section with 16 pages. Loss to a lower corner of the front leaf does not affect the mentioned article. Irregular at the spine and archival strengthening at the spine, various tears at margins. Should be handled carefully.
