This Buy It Now auction is for three of the highest value Sports Illustrated magazines ever offered on EBay.

 

Item #1 – A High Grade 1963 Cassius Clay Autographed “complete magazine” including cross authentication with independent authentication companies and both, a Letter and Certificate Authenticity.  An added bonus here is that, Ali hasn’t signed “Cassius Clay” since the early 60’s and the magazine itself is one of the best I’ve ever seen.  All four items have been professionally designed/framed together and are presentation ready when you open the box.  The frame window is made of a plastic expressly designed for document presentation with UV protection so you will be able to hang your trophy piece for decades without experiencing fade due to exposure to light.  This is a collector/investor dream.  Appraised value between $3700- $4400.

 

Iten #2 – the 1954 Inaugural First edition of Sports Illustrated.  This particular edition is “Uncirculated”, purchased directly from the Sports Illustrated Inventory Sales section.  It has been professionally graded 9.6 Mint!!! out of 10 by CGC Universal – the most respected, recognized magazine grading company in the industry.  You could have picked 100 off the newsstand in 1954 and only one of them would have even started out to be this nice right from the printing press!!!  One of only a select few SI #1’s ever rated this high by CGC!!!  Appraisal value between $900 - $1300. 

 

Item #3 – the Second edition of Sports Illustrated.  This exact magazine was purchased off the newsstand (not a subscription copy) 59 years ago and filed away waiting for this day to arrive.  There are no signs it was ever opened.  It has been professionally graded and received the highest grade ever recorded on this issue - 9.4 Mint!!! out of 10 - by CGC Universal – the most respected, recognized magazine grading company in the industry.  According to historical data and a census of avid SI collector’s, this issue is the most “in demand” of all SI’s and continues to increase in value as time passes for the following reasons:

1.    There are significantly fewer newsstand copies (compared to the #1) in existence.

2.   There was no protective mailer or folio to keep #2 condition from degrading.

3.   This issue is the only appearance of the 1954 Topps Mickey Mantle card. 

It is the “Perfect Storm” of sports magazine collecting.  The #2 edition of SI is the “Coup d’grasse” of the entire sports magazine industry and this magazine is the "Coup d’grasse" of all #2 issues known to be in existence.  It is in the best condition and highest ever graded.  Everybody laughed at Wayne Gretzky when he paid $50,000 for a Honus Wagner until several years later he sold it for $410,000.  Very difficult to appraise as there are no comparables. Estimate $3,000 - $5,000.
