Check Up on SI’s Andrew Wiggins Cover

Posted by admin On February - 25 - 2014

In my post of October 11, 2013, I chose Sports Illustrated as Cover of the Week, for its cover featuring Andrew Wiggins, the 18-year-old guard from Thornhill, Ontario.

The October 2013-42 sold 63% better than the same time slot in 2012.

It too was basketball related.
