Get in on the ground floor with this inaugural issue of Sports Illustrated. Dated 8/16/54, this seminal Volume 1, #1 first ever issue got the ball rolling for what has turned out to be the most popular sports magazine ever. In addition to being the keystone of SI's sixty-six year run, this important first issue is also favored by collectors for its famous cover photo of Milwaukee Braves slugger Eddie Mathews and most importantly for a three-page 1954 Topps baseball card foldout that features a tremendous array of period stars, such as Ted Williams, Willie Mays, Jackie Robinson, Duke Snider, Eddie Mathews, Larry Doby, Gil Hodges and Richie Ashburn. This respectable examples is worthy of an (EX) rating and the reasonable starting point is most inviting.
