Description

Sixty-Four years ago Sports Illustrated hit newsstands for the first time in August, 1954. Since then the celebrated publication has grown to be the champion sports magazine. The first two editions are highly sought by avid collectors for being the foundation of the magazine’s run and also for the inclusion of three-page Topps baseball card foldout premiums. Get your slice of the pie with this SI 2nd Edition from 8/23/54. It’s unlikely you will find a more pleasing example than this one, which is the highest rated (9.4 NM) by leading certification service CGC. Bright and glossy with bold colors and a solid spine, this handsome issue is bestowed with the additional Universal Grade label notations of “White Pages” and “Double gatefold NY Yankees trading card portraits”, referring to the high quality of the interior pages and the aforementioned Topps foldout respectively.
