Depicting the hottest venue in baseball on its innovative colorful cover, the inaugural August 16, 1954 issue of Sports Illustrated represented the dawn of a new era in sports journalism. This inaugural issue copy is autographed by its fence-clearing subject, Eddie Mathews. Emerging prominently against the County Stadium background, Mathews’ blue marker signature projects (“9”) strength and clarity. With covers, pages and Topps card insets intact, the issue presents nicely in (NM) condition. Comes in a black “Sports Illustrated” hard presentation folder with “First Issue August 16, 1954” on the bottom right corner in gold letters. Full photo LOA from JSA.
