*Sports Illustrated Presents *has published a special collector's Pro Football Hall of Fame issue commemorating the Class of 2006, which consists of Reggie White, Troy Aikman, Harry Carson, John Madden, Warren Moon, and Rayfield Wright.
The 84-page magazine features an action shot of White in a Green Bay Packers uniform on the cover that hit newsstands in Wisconsin on Thursday. White was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame last Saturday. Induction ceremonies in Canton, Ohio, are slated for Aug. 5.
The special edition, which has a limited press run of 60,000 copies, will be sold at area retailers such as Fleet Farm, Pick N Save, Target, Wal-Mart and Woodmans with a cover price of $6.99.
Additional copies featuring an action shot of White in a Philadelphia Eagles uniform will be available throughout the greater Philadelphia area. Copies available on newsstands throughout Texas will feature an action shot of Aikman on the cover. All three editions will be available on newsstands in Canton, Ohio.
One highlight of the special issue is an article reprinted from the Sept. 2, 1996, edition of SI in which Johnette Howard describes how White was one of a kind.
"It takes a giant of a man with a huge heart and a powerful will to build a church and then rebuild it from the ashes while also galvanizing a young team and ultimately leading it to the Super Bowl," Howard explains.
The issue also features White's career in pictures, along with stats and milestones. Extensive features of all the inductees are included.
Note: As with all *SI Presents *commemorative issues, this edition is separate from the current weekly issue of SI.
