In honor of its 60th anniversary, Sports Illustrated narrowed down 3,069 covers to a list of 32 and asked readers to vote on which was the most iconic.

After five rounds, the winner by a landslide: "Miracle on Ice," from March 3, 1980, depicting one of the greatest moments in American sports history.

It remains the only SI cover without any headlines or type whatsoever. (As photographer Heinz Kluetmeier told Richard Deitsch in 2008, "It didn't need it. Everyone in America knew what happened.")
