Description



Head back to the earlier days of Sports Illustrated's fantastic sixty-eight year run, with this lot of (15) CGC graded issues. When it comes to print coverage of the wide world of sports, nobody does it better than SI. This better grade, vintage selection delivers the goods, with a nice mix of pro, collegiate and Olympic athletes, from the sports of baseball, football, basketball, and ice skating. Headliners are "Sir Francis" Tarkenton making his cover debut, "Whitey" Ford on a 1950s issue from the height of the Yankees dynasty, Notre Dame's "Fighting Irish" football team, and "Sudden Sam" McDowell, who has contributed a fully certified autograph to the cause. With the times changing as rapidly as they are, the print medium is in its waning days. When magazines go extinct in the near future, it's likely vintage back issues such as these will become hot commodities, so get 'em while the getting is good.
