Steffi Graf SI Cover 1989 Fraulein Forehand, the great Steffi Graf, was the cover subject of this issue of Sports Illustrated from 1989. Armed with a powerful inside-out forehand and a classic slice backhand, Graf dominated tennis for a little while--capturing a rare grand slam in 1988. Despite SI deeming Graf to be invincible, Monica Seles was on the rise and would soon rival the formidable German for supremacy in women's tennis.

Keith Magnuson Chicago Blackhawks' tough guy Keith Magnuson was featured on this Sports Illustrated cover from April 1970. Magnuson's Hawks never won a Stanley Cup, although they got to the finals in both 1971 and 1973. The genial Magnuson was tragically killed in a traffic accident in a Toronto suburb on December 15, 2003. He was a passenger in a car driven by former NHLer Rob Ramage. (The men were attending a funeral of a fellow NHLPA member.) Ramage was convicted of driving while intoxicated. Magnuson's estate was awarded $9.5 million in damages to be paid by Ramage and the car rental agency that had rented the vehicle to Ramage.

Tennis Prodigy Jennifer Capriati Tennis prodigy Jennifer Capriati was just shy of her fourteenth birthday when she graced the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1990. Her father and one-time coach, Stefano, wanted Jennifer to turn pro at 13 but the WTA's rules would not allow for anyone to play in a professional event until the month of her fourteenth birthday. (Jennifer's birthday is March 29, 1976.) With much fanfare she reached the final of her first two pro tourneys and was ranked eighth in the world by the end of the year. She won a gold medal at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and things looked totally promising. However, Capriati had a disappointing 1993. By 1994 she had been arrested for shoplifting a $35 ring and marijuana possession. To prevent further 'burn-out cases' among young players, the WTA instituted rules restricting the number of events players under 16 could enter. A Capriati comeback had moderate success, but Capriati was out of tennis by 2004 at age 28. On June 28, 2010, Capriati was recovering from an overdose of prescription drugs, according to a family spokesman.

White Athlete SI Cover The December 8, 1997 issue of Sports Illustrated opened a can of worms with its cover story: What Ever Happened to the White Athlete? (The caption was strategically placed over a photo of the all-white 1956 Princeton basketball squad.) The story garnered all sorts of reactions--positive, negative, and everything in between. Among the most thought-provoking revelations in the article were those from a coach at a racially diverse high school who noted that very few white kids ever tried out for the school's basketball and football teams, but there was no shortage of whites who tried out for soccer, baseball, and volleyball.

KO Magazine KO Magazine ('The Knockout Boxing Magazine,' as it was billed) was a boxing publication that at one time rivalled The Ring, the longtime stately 'Bible of Boxing,' for readership. It first appeared in 1980 as a monthly publication when pro boxing was experiencing a renaissance. KO quickly captured the attention of boxing fans with its well written stories, lengthy interviews--and especially its color centerfolds of prominent fighters. Its annual award issue was often filled with laugh-provoking absurdities. (One such kudo targetting TV's irritating boxing announcers was the Howard Cosell Talks A Lot But Says Nothing Award. The shortest TV fight of the year was given the Don't Get Up To Get A Beer Award.) Steve Farhood, who now writes excellent boxing pieces for Sports Illustrated, got his start at KO. KO eventually became a victim of boxing's declining popularity. It was eventually acquired by The Ring and absorbed into the latter. The last distinct issue of KO was published in 2006. Heavyweight champion Larry Holmes is shown on the cover of this issue from 1982.
