    I still have some of the cards that used to come with the magazine that you could tear out. Probably worth a nickle each.

    I’m focused on another cover right now. It’s some bullshit. Meech you need a “STFU Verducci” post for this one.

    The best (worst) part of SIFK was that part where they’d poll idiotic kids about sports issues.
    SHOULD WOMEN BE IN THE NFL
    97% Yes 3% No

    “Women are nice athletes too. My mom watches football with me.”

    “Women could get hurt.”

    I remember their weird little shit cards. I must have got a dozen pathetically flimsy Rey Ordonezes.

    On the subject of old SI for Kids cards, there was an issue with Larry Johnson of the Knicks on the cover and in it was a Tiger Woods “rookie card.” I ended up selling my issue on eBay about 5 or 6 years ago for just under $600. It was literraly his first card or some shit like that, and people were going batshit for them.

    Is there a swimsuit issue for kids?

  • Gonzo

    Walklett, that is wrongness of epic proportions.

    (kudos)

    I kid, I kid…wait, that doesn’t sound right either.

  • DrummerBoy

    Some headline. Now the Phils are the team to beat? Did they miss the last two seasons?

  • Jim

    How does it work when the Kids issue has them as the “team to beat” and the normal one has the Mets winning it all?

  • MikeY

    I’m still waiting for the Phillies Wheaties box…
