The first Sports Illustrated ever


WORLD'S FIRST SPORTS ILLUSTRATED
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Tell me about the world's first Sports Illustrated?

A magazine named Sports Illustrated was published in the 1930 but do to lack of interest soon failed. Another Sports Illustrated met the same fate in the 1940's.

Time eventually purchased the rights to the name and on August 16 1954 the first Sports Illustrated magazine that we know and love was published.

The honors of appearing on the cover went to third baseman Edwin Lee Mathews.

Edwin Lee Mathews played for the Boston Braves, Atlanta Braves, Milwaukee Braves from 1952 to1966, the Houston Astros in 1967 and the Detroit Tigers from 1967 to1968.

The first swimsuit edition was published in 1964 with Babette March gracing the cover.
