Time Person of the Year Covers
This link may be of interest to you cover junkies out there.

If you want to test yourself, look at the covers on the link attached.  Guess which are the three top sellers from 2009 through 2001.  Then come back and look below for ABC statistics.  If you peak you are cheating.

Thanks to Elinor Schindel for bringing it to my attention.

#2: 2001 Rudy Giuliani cover (420,356 copies)
