Quick Overview

We are fortunate to have discovered yet another original of this famous edition of the Chicago Tribune of November 3, 1948. It is the complete, original and authentic newspaper.

This is arguably the most famous and sought after newspaper of all time. When the decision to print this paper was made, returns were coming in very slowly and time was running out before the deadline for the edition. The Tribune staff, based on the early returns, decided Dewey would be the next President. After the newspaper was delivered to the street, more returns came in and showed that Truman would be the ultimate winner and be reelected as President. The already delivered "error" newspapers were gathered for return by staff members sent out to pick them up from newsstands and homes in the Chicago area. It also has the paragraph of type in the upside down position as all original examples have since the newspaper workers in haste to get the edition to the newsstands made the error.

Original editions of this newspaper are becoming increasingly scarce, especially complete examples like this one. Here is a description of the condition. This is the full and complete newspaper.. Overall we would rate the condition as Very Fine. The front cover displays well and would look even better framed. The coloring is consistent with only minor spots of toning. It has some very typical and minor tearing at the edges and in the center of the horizontal fold.

The value of these historic newspapers is generally valued based on, overall coloring, tears and rips, completeness and any other faults. As is true with most vintage newspapers, some toning and edge tears are to be expected, especially from newspapers that are over 60 years old

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire one of the most famous newspaper ever produced. Several papers in terrible condition have sold at auction for $2,000 or more. Ones in excellent condition are selling in the $3,000 - $4,000 range. If you are searching for one of these rare newspapers this is your chance to to acquire this highly sought after newspaper at a very good price since it is not in pristine condition. Looks great in an office or library or is an exceptional gift item. .
