Tony Gwynn (d.2014) may have been the greatest hitter of his generation and was a master of going the other way and hitting line drives through holes in the infield. Gwynn is taking a calculated cut on the cover of this July 28, 1997 Sports Illustrated magazine (Volume 87: Issue #4). It is his first or "rookie" cover. Encapsulated and graded 9.8 by CGC, the flawless collectible is entitled "The Best Hitter Since Ted Williams". None graded higher.
