Dear Babe: You have written about the first and second issues of Sports Illustrated. Do you happen to know the print run of these two magazines? -- Roland Garn, Windsor, Ontario, Canada
Dear Roland: It's nice to get a change of pace about the first issues of Sports Illustrated, dated Aug. 16 and 23, 1954.
As far as Da Babe can tell, no one has really tried to figure out approximately how many issues are out there. I was told that the first two magazines went to subscribers of Time and Life, which would mean millions of copies went out.
