UPDATED JANUARY 23rd, 2011 : Added more covers (Björn Borg, Kelly Slater, Muhammad Ali and Julius Erving) and better images of Arnold Palmer, Tim Lincecum and Tom Brady.
Apparently there are at least 5 different covers for GQ US February 2011 (last year they only have one, Johnny Depp) : Joe Namath (former American football quarterback, now 67), Arnold Palmer (American golfer, now 81), Michael Jordan (former basketball player, now 47), Tim Lincecum (Major League Baseball starting pitcher, 26) and Gisele Bundchen‘s husband, Tom Brady (American football quarterback, 33).
All of them are gracing GQ‘s special issue of 25 Coolest Athletes of All Time. Could there be more covers because they also featured the names of Muhammad Ali, Bjorn Borg, Julius Erving and Kelly Slater on the cover?
