Ali I'm sure is one. How about some guesses after that...DiMaggio, Arthur Ashe, Ted Williams, Mantle

Mickey Mantle, DiMaggio, Campanella, Ted Williams and Yogi Berra

Ali is correct. There are no baseball players.

JFK is definitely one.

Roger Staubach

I had been unaware of JFK, which is correct. My apologies.

Staubach is right.

Bobby Fisher
Joe Namath
Sugar Ray Robinson
Ali and Frazier

I am embarrassed to say I had not done sufficient homework before posing this question. I am aware of one other correct answer -- an Olympian.

Mark Spitz

Bruce Jenner? Oh, I didn’t see the 1972 cut off with Life magazine. So it wouldn’t be Jenner. Maybe Arnold Palmer appeared on all three covers.

Jack Nicklaus?

With the help of these responses I have identified 7 individuals who meet the standard. All have been mentioned above: JFK, Ali, Frazier, Namath, Staubach, Fischer and Spitz. If the question were re-drawn to remove the 1954 starting date limitation, then Sugar Ray Robinson would qualify as he appeared on Time in 1951. And, I suspect there would be at least several others if question extended to include Life for its (post-1972) monthly and special issues. Nadia Comaneci, for example, appeared on a 1990 Life cover, having appeared on Time and SI in 1976.

One last correction. Baseball players omitted: Mantle, Mays, Williams and Stengel.

How about Billie Jean King?
