1958/02/05 — ITEM DESCRIPTION: Oversized, appx. 11-3/4″ X 16-1/2″ classic The Sporting News issue printed on newsprint. The image at the left is a cropped out portion of the cover (too large to fit the whole thing on my scanner!) and there are other images below from inside this issue. Classic Sporting News from when it was “The Baseball Paper of the World”!
There is just too much packed into each issue of The Sporting News to list it all, but I have paged through this entire issue and here are some of the highlights:
“Trader Lane Finds Yanks Talk Too Big — Tribe GM Backs Off When Bombers Want Avila as Well as Narleski in Deal”
36 pages plus 8-page All-Sports section for 44 pages total.
