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 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
