DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN NEWSPAPER
One of the most rare, desirable and embarrassing newspapers ever printed, the Nov. 3, 1948 edition (front and last page only) of the Chicago Daily Tribune whose front page headline screams "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN" and also reads: "PUTS G.O.P. BACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE...SIZEABLE ELECTORAL MARGIN SEEN". Of course, one of politics' most enduring images is Harry Truman bearing a broad smile as he holds the paper up to be photographed. Five lines in second paragraph of right hand column inverted. A similar full copy of the Chicago Daily Tribune for Nov. 3, 1948 recently sold at Christies for $3,600! Toned with wear to the edges, a minor tear with no loss, else very good.
Estimate $ 750-1,000
