Encapsulated and graded 9.8 by CGC. An incredibly high-grade 144-page issue (Volume 1: Issue #1) in flawless shape on the front cover depicting Braves slugger Eddie Mathews. The three-panel 1954 Topps Baseball card insert presumably presents well given the condition of the magazine and includes Hall of Famers Ashburn, Doby, Mathews, Mays, J. Robinson, Snider and T. Williams among the (27) players. The precious cornerstone of any serious Sports Illustrated cover collection. A solid specimen with none graded higher.
