Football royalty graces the scene with this lot of (4) Sports Illustrated magazines featuring Fran Tarkenton on the front covers. Dubbed "Sir Francis" by brilliant sportscaster Howard Cosell, Tarkenton broke new ground with his scrambling style of play and when he retired, he held every major quarterback record. Declare your allegiance to the NFL's ultimate field general by scoring this quartet of 1960s SI issues published during the condition sensitive "dark print era". Highlights are (2) CGC issues with: 10/29/62 SI Vol. 17, #18 marking Tarkenton's first SI cover appearance (6.0); and 7/17/67 SI Vol. 27, #3 (7.5). Also present are raw examples of these same (2) issues with: 10/29/62 (EX); and 7/17/67 (EX).
