THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 25, 1939
* Joe DiMaggio wins his 1st MVP award
* New York Yankees - Yankee Clipper
* MLB baseball - Best title to have in ?
The sport's section (page 31) has a six column headline: "DiMaggio Voted Most Valuable Player in American League" with subheads that include: "YANKS' OUTFIELDER WINS ON 280 POINTS" "Foxx Next, Feller Third" and more. (see) Also a very nice action photo of DiMaggio. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially on this topic.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Very nice condition.
