    1971 Muhammad Ali & Joe Frazier Sports Illustrated Magazine CGC 9.0, Pop One with None Higher. "With the popularity of graded SI magazines steadily increasing, the next logical step in collector progression is the formulating and accumulating of the most recognizable registries - Clay/Ali, Jordan, Swimsuits, and many more. This Clay/Ali collection of the high/highest grade encapsulations ever assembled or available in the hobby is presented for the first time by the John Wyllie Collection and promises to be the lightning rod for future registries. Each submission is proudly noted with the CGC census population ensuring many of the highest grades in the registry."
