As the Bronx and Brooklyn squared off for the seventh and final time, Sports Illustrated previewed the showdown that would include a perfect game, three Mantle home runs and more heartache in Flatbush. Encapsulated and Graded Fine/Very Fine 7.0 by CGC, this October 1, 1956 issue of S.I. is one of three at its tier with none graded higher. This Fall Classic keepsake ranks #38 on the "Hardest to Find" list. Interestingly enough, it appears as though objective journalism did not apply for this issue, whose cover features a photo of Mantle and bullet points that read: “The Cocky National League,” “Yankee Power in Color,” and “Down the Stretch With Stengel” with nothing specific pertaining to the Dodgers.
