Not a good picture of AJ... Although i'm sure that wasn't unintentional.

I'm surprised that nobody posted the Podsednik home run cover from game 2 of the World Series.

I thought about it. But decided the other World Series edition was more glorious. This one is pretty sweet though. Quite the action shot.

I was just going to post this. I could have gotten upset like others did, but I was way to happy at the time to let SI get me down.

EDIT: Why does "Send to phone" appear in my post?

Didn't Harry Chappas make a SI cover, or was it just a long article about him in a SI issue?

Chappas was on the cover for the March 19, 1979 issue (http://vault.sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/cover/featured/8632/index.htm).

I always liked the August 10, 1959 (http://vault.sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/cover/featured/7627/index.htm) and the April 30, 1962 (http://vault.sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/cover/featured/7766/index.htm) covers myself.

It didn't make the cover, but here's a link (http://vault.sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/edb/reader.html?magID=SI&issueDate=19800519&mode=reader_vault) to the May 19, 1980 issue with a great article about the 1980 White Sox, their five left-handed pitchers (Burns, Trout, Baumgarten, Kravec, Wortham) and rookie Harold Baines. The article starts on page 28.

In the 1980 Issue, on page 16 there is a great ad with Jim Palmer in his underwear. Still gives me the creeps 29 years later.

Yeah with a ciggy in his mouth juggling baseballs. :gulp:

Maybe add a racing form under one arm and a taco menu from across the street (from the famous pinch-hit story) under the other. :D:

We need more guys like Dick Allen in baseball today.

I here about all the Sox players from the past, Dick Allen is the one guy I wish I could have seen play.

Earlier link I posted allows you to view the entire issue on-line, including the ads.

I'm a little too young to remember Dick Allen, but I've heard he used to splinter seats in the left field bleachers when hit hit home runs. Any truth to that?

Agreed. The only thing that sucks about the Dick Allen cover is that you can't buy it as a reprint.

The cigarette was Bill Melton's.

Dick Allen in 1972, and up until his injury in a play at first base in 1973, was the most lethal hitter I've ever seen. Unfortunately, after the injury, he wasn't very interested in playing baseball for the White Sox and ultimately quit on his team.

You can usually find this SI on ebay for under $5.
