This should really be in another category entitled "vintage". This is a copy of the very first Sports Illustrated Magazine to ever come out on the newstands, August 16, 1954. Although there is some wear to the binding of the magazine, as well as a small "curl" to the upper right hnd corner, the magazine is in extremely good condition. From the fold out centerfold of the "new" 1955 Ford Thunderbird, to the fold out of Topps baseball cards, which one could cut out (they weren't perforated then) its a wonderful piece of history. We have kept this in a plastic cover, but have taken it out on ocassion through the years to read an enjoy. Only one.
