First Issue of Sports Illustrated in a Rare, Attractive Slipcase Box.

Lot 27. First Issue of Sports Illustrated in a Rare, Attractive Slipcase Box. The condition of this inaugural issue, from Aug. 16, 1954, is strong. The magazine shows some light wear on the corners, and the lower right corner has a tiny crease. At the same time, it is free of the stress creases often seen along the spine. What makes it exceptional are the leather-like slipcase and tray that contain it. Previously, we have not seen them. Stamped in gold on the front of the slipcase is “Sports Illustrated, First Issue, August 16, 1954.” The slipcase is ex-m with light wear on the corners and a small impression toward the lower center. The tray that fits into the slipcase shows little wear. Inside the magazine, the three-panel fold-out of Topps 1954 baseball “cards” is nm, free of creases except for the Turley card. Unusual and desirable “Sports Illustrated” and baseball collectible!
Winning Bid $528.
