SI has had many stars on its cover over the years. This week's celebrates the people who have made our previous 3,069 possible: our readers. Last month we asked our audience online and on Twitter to submit photos of themselves playing a sport or being a fan. Thousands of you responded, and the photos were used to create a mosaic reproduction of the image on our very first cover: Braves slugger Eddie Mathews on Aug. 11, 1954. Can't find yourself?
