Baseball Digest Covers, 1970-1999

Baseball Digest is Baseball Almanac's favorite publication. Each issue is a treasure trove of charts, quotes and articles. To say it has inspired Baseball Almanac is an epic understatement. We are attempting to collect every issue of Baseball Digest for our baseball resource library and to that end we present the Baseball Digest Covers from 1970 through 1999.

Important notes: Baseball Digest cover topics are listed in the order they appear on the cover using left-to-right.

"The magazine itself has retained much of its familiar format in providing fans, young and old, with the kind of human interest articles and statistics about the players that have always been the publication's stock and trade." - Publisher / Baseball Digest Owner Norman Jacobs in Baseball Digest (January 2002)
