This was published by the NEW YORK TIMES! It is a beautiful photo journal of the news and images of the day throughout the United States and the world. This is packed with photos of people, places and history being made. The Mid-Week Pictorial measures just over 16 inches X 11 inches which allows for larger photos. This is a news stand publication.
This has touches of vintage edge and corner wear. The World Series coverage is in fine shape. The main thing to keep in mind is that these vintage Mid-Week Pictorials were not printed on acid-free paper, so there is a tendency for them to chip.
