1954 First Issue of Sports Illustrated with Topps Cards Foldout

Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $300

Highly desirable first issue of Sports Illustrated, published on August 16, 1954, complete with the three-page fold-out of twenty-seven 1954 Topps insert cards. The cards, which were a special promotion prepared in conjunction with Topps, makes this first issue of all the greater note to collectors. Interestingly, Sports Illustrated saved dozens of boxes of the first issue in its archives. Finally, in 1994, it released the entire inventory to the collecting community. The offered issue originates directly from that historic 1994 offering, which accounts for its pristine Mint condition.
