”TV Guide” launched as a national publication in April, 1953 as a result of Triangle Publishing’s purchase and consolidation of numerous regional television listing publications. Presented is a lot of (3) early 1954-56 “TV Guide” issues from television’s golden age featuring cover photos of Lucille Ball, Elvis Presley & Frank Sinatra. In addition to their prized covers these magazines contain exciting articles and photos of TV legends such as Milton Berle, Ernie Kovacs & Ed Sullivan. The Lucy issue (NO MAILING LABEL) is from the week of 12/10/55 and is graced by a stunning cover photo of Ms. Ball and includes a related three page article with photos. The Elvis issue is from the week of 9/8/56 and features a scarce image of the up and coming “King of Rock & Roll”. The Sinatra issue (NO MAILING LABEL) is from the week of 5/14/54 and features a bright-eyed photo of “Big Frank”. All (3) issues present in very nice condition with deference to minor soiling near the spine and across the top of the Elvis cover and a light vertical crease near the spine of the Sinatra cover. Neither of these conditions detracts from the appeal of these bold handsome cover images.
