    Old Tom Coughlin article

    I don't know if this is going to be the right place, but I'll give it a shot nonetheless.

    I have this old local newspaper (The Geneva Times), from October 22nd, 1963, the day that JFK was assassinated. On the front of the newspaper, of course, is all about JFK. However, a couple pages in, there's an article on Tom Coughlin winning Grid Honors in high school. Geneva is my hometown, which is about a 5-10 minute drive from Waterloo, Tom Coughlin's hometown. I'm a Cowboys fan, and even I found this to be more interesting than the JFK article.

    Nevertheless, I was wondering if the whole Tom Coughlin article would boost the newspaper's value at all? Would anyone know of a place where I could see how much it might be worth?

    This would not be the place to find out the value (if any) of that newspaper, though it is an interesting connection of Coughlin, Kennedy and you being a fan of the Dallas Cowboys. Love your signing of Romo; best case scenario for Giants fans.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    They say Coughlin told Kennedy to be 5min early ,if he had listened he may still be alive today.
