OT - Old Sports Illustrated Issues

I came across my old Sports Illustrated of LeBron James in high school and decided to start a collection of Old SI's.

So far I have:
LeBron in HS
Danny Fortson 1996
Reds 1975 World Series
Reds 1990 World Series
Royals 2015 World Series
Magic Johnson at Michigan State 1978
Darryl Strawberry 1984 (my sister is going to get it autographed for me bc shes going to see him speak in a couple weeks)

Anyone have any recommendations for other issues I should get? I'm hanging them all in frames in my office. I'm going to do them in chronological order so it can kind of be a sports history wall.

And also, if anyone has any old ones saved, I'll buy them from you. But they have to be of significance. Thanks!

Here are some other good ones I found doing a quick online search:

Mike Tyson KO Michael Spinks (7/4/88) - 91 second KO
Battle of the Titans (5/22/95) - Jordan blocking Shaq
The Epic Battle (10/13/75) - Ali vs. Frazier
Miracle (3/3/80) - US beats USSR in hockey at Olympics
Four! (4/18/05) - Tiger wins Masters number 4
Pat Tillman (5/3/04) - Pat Tillman remembered for his unbelievable sacrifice
Dream Team (2/18/91) - Olympic Dream Team
Gordie Howe (3/18/57) - Mr. Hockey's only appearance on the cover I believe
Paul Brown (8/12/68) - Before Bengals inaugural season
Brandi Chastain (7/19/99) - USA Women's Soccer Team wins Gold.

Check out this site. You can buy any issue and have it framed. Seems reasonably priced too. http://www.sicovers.com/

Edit: I would add this one too: Ickey Woods (1/16/89) - Bengals going to the Super Bowl.

Don't know if you're only looking to do only older covers or Cincinnati history, or both. If it were me I'd like to get any cover affiliated with Cincinnati.

Some I liked were:
Marge Schott smoking a cigarette.
Chad Johnson With Bengal stripes painted on his arm.
Chris Sabo from 1990 the cover reads "RED October"
Dieon Sanders sliding
Hunter Green (Reds just selected him 2nd overall at 17 years old) 100MPH
A couple Ken Griffey Jr and Joey Votto

If you google "Cincinnati Sports Illustrated Covers" then click on images you can scroll through quite a bit and get some ideas.

Great suggestions...I added the Ickey Woods, Deion Sanders, and Dream Team ones.

I think I will do most Cincinnati sports ones...or at least something from every era.

For the Tiger, Tyson, Griffey, Bonds, Serena, Phelps, Brady, Bolt, Magic, Bird, Jordan typpe legends I want to get their first appearance on the magazine.

The Miracle one, the first ever issue, the first swinsuit issue, and several others are on my list to ask for as gifts.

I believe I still have the Fortson SI cover. That regional cover was super sweet. For anyone who hasn't seen, I'd suggest you Google it.

Fortson is shirtless, and they have like a road map (in lights?), and it says the road to the FF runs thru Cincinnati.

I have all the game programs from each site on the way to the FF and the FF, which I would consider selling. Dayton, Kansas City, then Minneapolis.

There's a 2004 Griffey cover titled "Welcome Back" and the 2000 cover "How the Reds got Griffey".

Both must haves for me in any Cincinnati themed SI Cover collection.
