The 50th anniversary edition of Sports Illustrated is out and it has all 2,548 covers in it.

According to the breakdown the White Sox have been on 19 covers which ranks 27th All Time. The Cubs have been on 17.

These were the Sox covers that I was able to find (17 total so I'm missing two)

Billy Pierce - 1957
Aparicio / Fox - 1959
White Sox Team photo - 1959
Comiskey Park (exploding scoreboard) - 1960
Luis Aparicio - 1962
Orioles / White Sox Action (Gerry McNertney) - 1964
Durocher / Stanky - 1966
White Sox / Yankees Action (Ken Berry) - 1967
Dick Allen - 1972
Bill Melton - 1973
Wilbur Wood - 1973
Bill Veeck - 1976
Harry Chappas - 1979
Greg Luzinski - 1981
Michael Jordan - 1994
Griffey / Thomas - 1994
Frank Thomas - 2000

By the way as far as city teams, the Bulls had 44 covers, the Bears 22, and the Blackhawks 10.

Interesting...

I'm surprised we're only 27th all time. And that includes every team and person that's ever been on it? Or just teams?

As for the ones you're missing, I gotta believe they did a cover story on Frank in 91 or 92. That's surely one of them.

I'd love to get my hands on the scoreboard cover!

I've got the Luzinski cover autographed by the man himself. it looks sweet.

I rechecked...nothing on Thomas until 1994 just before the strike.

The Sox total ranking 27th is according to SI based on any people, players, things connected with that organization in other words team..

The Yankees have been on the most in 50 years with 59, the lakers have 57, the Cowboys 45, the Bulls 44 and the Dodgers 38.

How is it that Jordan has more than the bulls? Did he really have that many w/Washington?

The Bulls are pretty impressive with 44, and you know they all came in an 8 year span or so, save for maybe one or two in the mid 80s when Jordan was young and just a complete terror.
