THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 11, 1933

* Lou Gehrig signs contract
* New York Yankees - MLB

* The Long Beach earthquake


A nice three column headline on the front page has: "123 KILLED BY EARTHQUAKE IN SOUTH CALIFORNIA CITIES; 4,150 ARE REPORTED INJURED" with many subheads and related map (see photos). Much more on page 10 & 11.
Page 19 has one column headlines on page 19 that include: "YANKEE CONTRACT SIGNED BY GEHRIG", "Terms Not Announced, but Consensus Is Slugger Will Receive $21,500 This Year", "Leaves For Camp Today" and more with one column photo of Gehrig (see photos). Great to have in this New York City title.
Other news of the day throughout. Paper is in nice condition.
