SI Advances Production to Honor Cubs Win

SI readers win!

CwV5ZUWXgAAAV8cSports Illustrated ramped up its normal production schedule in order to help honor the Chicago Cubs’ first World Series win in more than 100 years.

The Cubs issue of SI will come to newsstands and subscribers as early as this Saturday and be available nationwide almost a full week early.

“Cubs fans have been waiting 108 years for this, so we figured it was only right to let them see their team on the cover of Sports Illustrated as World Series champions as soon a possible,” said SI executive editor Stephen Cannella, in an announcement. “A historic moment deserves a unique and historic issue of SI.”
