Info on SI for Kids Cards: Sports
Illustrated for Kids (SIFK) trading cards have been produced since January of
1989. Sports Illustrated began producing
a “kids” version of its magazine at that time which are still produced and
flourishing today. SIFK cards have been inserted into each issue every month
since that inaugural issue. They ‘re printed on a light cardboard stock paper
w/ perforated edges for separation purposes (IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT
GRADING COMPANIES WILL NOT GRADE THESE CARDS UNLESS THE PERFORATED EDGES ARE
PRESENT- OTHERWISE THE CARD IS CONSIDERED “CUT”). They are strictly
limited to a print run in the amount of issues published by the magazine that
month. Thus rendering them significantly less produced collectibles than their
traditional trading card counterparts manufactured in much larger quantities.
There are nine cards per sheet w/ a select few issues containing an add’l four
or “bonus” nine card insert sheet included. Since SI for Kids focuses
on ALL sports, some of the less “mainstream” sport athletes are featured on
these cards before any other trading cards! Some of the standout stars which
are depicted on these cards have no other trading cards of them at all- licensed
or otherwise. Many hobbyists in the industry see continued value for these
cards in the future, especially since the 1996 Tiger Woods SIFK card put the
brand on the map! SI for Kids cards are becoming increasingly more difficult to
find out in the marketplace than ever before.
