Babe Ruth re-signs with Red Sox...

Item # 687607

January 15, 1918

THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 15, 1918

* Early Babe Ruth (pre-fame)
* Boston Red Sox contract signing
* Major league baseball - MLB

This 24 page newspaper has a very small & discrete heading in the sport's section (page 15): "Babe Ruth Signs Contract". See photo for the very brief report on Ruth re-signing with the Boston Red Sox for the 1918 baseball season. Interesting that his signing received such a small mention considering his eventual prominence.

Other news of the day, sports and advertisements are present as well. Light browning with a little margin wear and chipping, but otherwise good - especially for the period. However, the issue should be handled with care.
