All this time I thought 70 tallies were enough, now I have to root for my favorite teams to get 75, damn.
I'm not sure what you mean by what do I think of the NY-Bost title page, other than it referring to the transition between the Mass and New York style of play. And all editions have cloth binding, so REA perhaps made a small error in the description.
