RR Autograph Auctions St. Valentine’s Day Massacre Newspaper

Original front page of the evening edition of the February 14, 1929, issue of The Baltimore News, 16.5 x 20.5, with the headline screaming “7 In Chicago Rum Gang Lined Up, Shot To Death,” and a smaller headline reading “Victims Riddled by Machine Guns; Assassins Escape.” Double matted and framed to an overall size of 22 x 26. In very good condition, with small tear to right edge, central horizontal fold, and mild toning, a bit heavier to edges. Seven members of Bugs Moran’s gang were gunned down in a warehouse, supposedly on the orders of his rival, Al Capone.
