    1954 Sports Illustrated #1 CGC 9.8--Finest Known! Any collector worth his salt will tell you that two adjectives carry heavy weight in this hobby--first, and finest. You'll enjoy both superlatives here, as the inaugural edition of the most important sports periodical of the post-war era is supplied in virtually pristine condition. This isn't the only 9.8 in the CGC rankings, but there are none graded higher. In more ways than one, this is just as good as it gets. The grading firm lists the pages "White" and the subscription insert is inside. Encapsulated by CGC, 9.8.
