March 1949 SPORT Cover (Ralph Beard, University of Kentucky)
Ralph Beard of the University of Kentucky was featured on the cover of the March 1949 issue of the SPORT Magazine. A controversial figure in the basketball world, Beard would star for the Wildcats helping lead them to consecutive NCAA Championships in 1948 and 1949, but would receive a life-time ban from the NBA for his role in the 1951 NCAA point shaving scandal.
SPORT Magazine, which ran from 1946 to 2000, celebrated what its editors accurately anticipated would be the coming explosion of interest in professional and amateur sport in post-war North America.
