Cover Battle: Sports Illustrated or The New Republic

Welcome back to another FishbowlNY Cover Battle. This week we have Sports Illustrated taking on The New Republic. The latest SI — featuring the Pittsburgh Pirates’ Andrew McCutchen — might be the best magazine cover of all time.*

The New Republic’s September cover is great as well. Let’s just hope that kid doesn’t actually wear that outfit to class.

So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
