October 04, 1951

NEW YORK TIMES, October 4, 1951 The front page begins with a three column head: "GIANTS CAPTURE PENNANT, BEATING DODGERS 54 IN 9TH ON THOMSON'S 3-RUN HOMER" with several related subheads. Also a nice photo of Bobby Thomson and manager Leo Durocher after the victory over the Dodgers.
Excellent coverage continues in the sports section including 8 photos and two banner headlines.
One of the better reports on one of the most famous moments in baseball history.
Complete in 68 pages, a minor repair at the front leaf right margin not affecting any text, otherwise in quite nice condition.
