Description



Make a famous first yours, with the capture of this CGC graded inaugural issue of Sports Illustrated magazine. Dated 8/16/54, this hotly collected first issue is famous for its night baseball cover picturing Milwaukee Braves slugger Eddie Mathews at the plate, and even more so for the three-page gatefold of Topps baseball cards. CGC has seen fit to bestow this pristine example with a superior grade designation of (9.6), with a "White Pages" notation.
