Overview

Guaranteed to provoke debate, please the eye, and stir nostalgia for the heroes of yesterday, Greatest Athletes of the 20th Century is an elegant celebration of the 25 outstanding sports performers of the past 100 years. From Babe Ruth to Babe Didriksen, from Willie Mays to Wilt Chamberlain, the best of the legends of sports come to life through Sports Illustrated's gorgeous photography and vivid, incisive profiles by two of the magazine's senior writers. Ranging in scope from the Golden Age of sport in the early part of the century to the glitzy era of $100 million contracts in the late '90s, Greatest Athletes showcases its subjects like no other book. With 200 eye-catching photographs, the book salutes both the personalities and the times that created them.
