Item # 685630

March 11, 1930

THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 11, 1930

* Babe Ruth signs contract
* New York Yankees
* MLB Baseball
* Best title to be had ?

The sport's section (page 30) has a banner headline: "Ruth Hits First Homer After Signing Contract, but Yanks Lose to Braves, 7-5" with subheads and box scores. (see) First report coverage on Babe Ruth signing one of his final contracts with the New York Yankees. Great to have in this famous NYC title.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 56 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. A few binding slits along the spine, nice condition.
