Description




Building from the ground up is a simple plan for success that works well in the collecting department. Score a rock solid publication foundation with this 1946-1969 Sport magazine complete run of (279) issues. That's right, this diligently assembled collection includes every edition in the venerable magazine's history for the described twenty-four year period, beginning with the 11/46 inaugural issue with Joe DiMaggio cover and running through to the 12/69 edition. Collected by a West Coast "Wizard" with an eye for quality, this fabulous run is broadly pleasing with bright, glossy covers. The 1940s earliest issues show the most wear, rating as above average to better, with the exception of the first issue which suffers moderate surface loss. Condition quality rises through the timeline, with nearly all of the 1950s-1960s issues presenting as better to excellent. Typically wear occurs at the top and bottom of the spines and along the edges, though many examples show minimal wear. Overall the run ranges as (75% EX to NM, 25% GD to VG-EX) unless noted. Featured are:
