A great find- but 100000 is absurd
I think 10k would be extreme for the value and that assumes that someone want all of them. From the late 60s through present those are going to be hard to move at more then a couple bucks a magazine

Agreed. It would be interesting to hear from someone who deals with SI's and could offer an educated guess as to total value. I'm not that guy.

I was going to say 3k, but it appears the ones they are showing have no labels as was common in the first year, but even if they are all no label I would have a hard time believing anyone would pay more than about 5-7k. As all of the cover guys have started dying off so have the collectors. I have a lot of them and haven't tried selling many for years. Maybe if you put full retail price for no label SI's and added it all up, maybe you get some ridiculous inflated number.

What does #1 go for? And, besides #1, are there others that are universally sought or just the ones that specific collectors (e.g. Mays guys, Mantle guys, Clemente guys, etc.) go for?

Steve Prefontaine's 1970 cover brings good money.

The prototypes may be driving that higher number. They may just be that fresh and in top condition though, which may bring a further premium from the right buyer.

There are a few issues with "cards" in them that are popular (I want to say #2 or #3 has some and seems to be harder to find than #1) and a number of super star covers that would be desirable, but I assume nobody would want the group as a whole, unless they were looking to resell.

None have sold on ebay recently without a label, but with a label they seem to go between $25 and $50.

No way does that run go for more than $10k, if it does, then I have a collection of SI, TSN & SL that I will happily sell to the buyer.
