In addition to this historic SI cover debut, this mega-important 8/18/69 SI Vol. 31, #8 issue enjoys a couple of high profile rankings. Published during the notoriously tough "Dark Print Era", this key issue is noted as #8 of the "Top 100" list of hardest to find SI back issues and its CGC supplied grade of (8.0) makes it tied for the highest ranked example on CGC's Census, with a population of "1/2", none higher.
