The market was flooded with #1's a few years back. Someone found unopened cases of them. I have never seen one graded this high but I would guess that his number is way off. I bought a beat-up one a while back just to say I had one for like $50.

Default Key word... flooded...

I worked with and still hangout with my best friends at B&E Collectibles of Thornwood, NY. B&E was known as the #1 dealer of sports publications in the nation. At their peak, a nice copy of the #1 Sport Illustrated went near $1,000. Then about 12-15 years ago the hobby was flooded with copies from a warehouse find. Really clean copies went for about $300 after that.

Coincidentally about 10 (Sept. 1999) years ago B&E's warehouse was flooded by Hurricane Floyd that ripped through our area. Long story short, B&E lost thousands of pubs that day and subsequently moved more into vintage cards and memorabilia which they did as well. Joe and the guys are still at it.

Another thing that seems odd is once you get it graded and slabbed you will never see the 1954 Topps insert cards again. That's the coolest part of the issue.

Best to All,
