EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Nov. 28, 1914
* Early Army-Navy game
* College football rivalry

The front page has a nice banner headline in red lettering: "ARMY OVERWHELMING NAVY IN ANNUAL GRIDIRON CLASSIC" with subheads. (see) This was Army's last game of the 1914 season and then be selected as 1 of the 3 teams recognized as national champions. 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. Rare as such.
Complete with 12 pages, 2 small library stamps within the masthead, a little irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
