The 500th issue of Commodities/Futures magazine is out. It took a little work to go over 500 issues, but it was also a lot of fun looking at past stories and covers.
Magazine covers are an interesting thing; they're a glimpse into a different period of time and an idea of what a group of people thought was important to highlight.
As part of our 500th issue celebration we decided to select the 10 best or most significant covers of the 500. Because we are a news magazine the criteria included, in addition to aesthetics, the significance of what was being highlighted.
Here are the top 10 covers (and one of the worst) of Commodities/Futures magazine.
