Description

Years and years of mailbox trips offer the winning bidder a near complete run of (1781 different) Sports Illustrated magazines from Issue #1 (August 16, 1954) through December 25, 1989. The first issue is accompanied by the original mailing envelope, along with most of the original 1954 Topps insert cards (three have been neatly extracted) and the original business reply card still firmly attached. The second issue is missing the card supplements and the two issues from 1955 contain only one page each of the 1955 Topps replica cards. Every issue from 1954-1961 is present, with about 30%-40% from that run showing varying degrees of moisture damage, but all pages are present and they are readable, page-by-page. Highlights include the Mantle covers, Ted Williams, Unitas, Nicklaus, Prefontaine and Jordan. This lot is in our Oakland, CA office and available for pick up. A shipping surcharge will apply. More on our website.

Virtually all issues still have mailing labels present and most still have the original business reply cards still attached to the spines. Perfect for obtaining autographs or break them up and sell them individually.

1962 (13 issues): September 10, 17, 24; October 1, 8, 15; November 12, 19, 26; December 3, 10, 17, 24
