Description



The fertile fields of Indiana are famous for yielding high quality basketball players. One such player was ABA star Rick Mount, who is pictured on the front cover of this 2/14/66 Sports Illustrated magazine. A standout for the Purdue Boilermakers and several ABA teams, Mount was one of the earliest high school stars to make the cover of Sports Illustrated, with this Vol. 24, #7 issue. A well-preserved treasure, this handsome example is rated (8.5) by CGC, good for the top spot on the Census report as "1/2", none higher.
