Sports Illustrated, vol. 1, no. 1

New York: Time, Inc., 1954. Wraps. Quarto size, 144 pp. Near fine. Item #210503001

For decades sports fans eagerly awaited the weekly arrival of "Sports Illustrated" in their mailboxes. The best sports writers covered all sports major and minor and offered their insights on all matters. Of course football, baseball and basketball were extensively covered, but boxing, the Olympics, motor racing, horse racing and many others were also covered. What really brought the magazine to prominence was the level of photography which accompanied each article.

___DESCRIPTION: Bound in pictorial stapled wraps, title in orange on the front wrap, three folding pages of baseball cards attached; quarto size (11.5" by 8.25"), pagination: 1-144. Original pictorial mailing envelope with addresses label depicting multiple sports in bright colours.

___CONDITION: The magazine is in overall near fine condition; it almost looks unread, with bright colours, the corners and spine are sharp, one slight 1/32" closed tear at the upper staple, the slightest of creases at the other two staples, else fine. The mailing envelope is in overall good condition, the colours are bright and sharp, a four inch open tear to front right lower margin, creases to all four corners, discolouring to rear cover, prior owner mailing label to front cover, still quite nice.

___POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details.
