Dewey Beats truman Chicago Daily Tribune

On November 3, 1948, "Dewey Defeats Truman" was a famously mis-printed on the front page of the Chicago Tribune the day after Harry S. Truman beat Republican challenger and Governor of New York Thomas E. Dewey.

The headline was talked about all over the country when people woke to read Dewey Defeats Truman. Some of the lucky people that were fortunate enough to obtain one of these rare papers made a great investment. The newspaper today is worth over $2,000.
