    The cover (as well as the six others used) is being offered as a poster on the magazine’s web site — $44.95 unframed or $74.95 framed. I’m not sure how the seven different covers are being split between newstand sales and subscription issues — sometimes subscribers will get a different cover.

    Thank you ESPN,

    I think it is fabulous that ESPN is acknowledging Esther as a superior athlete and a beautiful woman.
    The fact she uses a wheelchair for mobility is secondary.
