Babe Ruth is featured on the cover of the September 10, 1929 issue of Kotobuki News, which was evidently a four page daily newspaper. Ruth is described to the right of his photo as, "Home run king Babe Ruth, gallant figure". There is no article about Ruth inside the newspaper.

We have never seen this item before now, so we expect that the winner of this lot will be the sole worldwide owner of a copy of this document. Japanese text.

Size: 9 1/4" x 12 3/8". Four pages.

Condition: Three horizontal folds which may have been made by the manufacturer prior to issue. Some creasing and crinkling at the top above Ruth's image. Overall G/Vg.
