Predicting a Champion

Astros player on the cover of Sports Illustrated

Who knew that in 2014, a Sports Illustrated cover predicting the Astros would win the 2017 World Series would become one the most sought-after collector’s items following the big win? ESPN reports that full copies of the magazine, published on June 30, 2014, have sold on eBay auctions for as much as $1,025 each.

Not only did the issue predict a win, it also doubled down and picked George Springer as World Series MVP for the cover. Capture a piece of history by checking out MLBshop.com for your print of the cover signed by Springer for $230.
