While the first Sports Illustrated magazine designated as a "Swimsuit Issue" came out in 1964, this early ancestor deserves attention for its cover photo of Betty di Bugnano. Dated 2/21/55, this second year edition features the shapely model in a one-piece swimsuit set against a tropical background and could surely serve as the cherry on top of an SI Swimsuit edition collection. Graded (8.0) by CGC with a "White Pages" label notation, this important early SI issue has a Census rank of "1/1" at this grading tier, with just one higher.
