1898 James J. Jeffries boxing...

Item # 680885

March 23, 1898

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, March 23, 1898

* James J. Jeffries vs. Peter Jackson
* Heavyweight boxing fight - match

The front page has a one column heading: "PETE JACKSON WHIPPED" with subheads. (see) This was prior to Jeffries gaining the World heavyweight title. 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 4 pages, a few small library stamps within the masthead, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
