WELCOME TO THE SPORT GALLERY

The SPORT Gallery is a fine-art gallery and apparel boutique dedicated to showcasing and commemorating the golden era of sports. We currently have galleries in Toronto and Vancouver, Canada, that allow customers to step back in time to the good old days. Our concept is built on the SPORT magazine archive, which we've brought to life through the images, pages, and covers of the historic magazines, and paired with curated vintage-inspired apparel, accessories, and gifts.

"SPORT" comes from SPORT magazine - the first general-interest sports magazine. SPORT is not only the source of our exclusive photography collection, but also the source of our inspiration...

SPORT Magazine

SPORT magazine launched in 1946, as the first-general interest sports magazine. It seized an unappreciated subject like sports and took it mainstream.

Fondly remembered today as pure Americana, SPORT was the brainchild of a small New York publisher, MacFadden Publications Inc, and became a triumph from the day its first issue hit the street with a color image of Joe DiMaggio and his son Joe, Jr. on the cover.

That inaugural edition included eight full color plates — unheard of at the time — and almost immediately SPORT rose to over a million in circulation and became half bible, half guru to a generation of men coming of age in post-war America.

In its early years, SPORT had the market for magazine-style sports journalism virtually to itself and, under founding editor Ernest Heyn, pioneered a brand of behind-the-scenes glimpses of the heroes of the day not previously attempted.Read more

Yankee Stadium, Wrigley Field, Fenway Park. Those would be conventional answers for the lofty theatres of dreams dancing through the heads of young baseball hopefuls.  But the Big O? During this past offseason, Toronto Blue Jays General Manager Alex Anthopolous added (most likely) the only free-agent who grew up with dreams of playing at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium. The […]

ANYWAY YOU SLICE IT, VANCOUVER ISN’T EXACTLY THE CITY OF CHAMPIONS… The Lions have just 6 Grey Cups to their name since 1954.  The Whitecaps, though currently in possession of the Cascadia Cup, have had nothing to parade about since capturing the 1979 Soccer Bowl in the NASL days.  If you like baseball, you surely […]
