The U.S. Women’s National Team made history by becoming the first team to win three Women’s World Cups, inspiring a nation in the process (the 2015 Women’s World Cup was the most-watched soccer game – men’s or women’s – in U.S. history). The world champs continued to make history when they were honored with a Ticker Tape Parade in New York City’s famed Canyon of Heroes last Friday, marking the first time in more than half a century that the honor was bestowed upon female athletes, and the first ever ticker tape parade celebrating an all-female sports team.

That same day, before and after the parade, Sports Illustrated paid special tribute to the USWNT by executing the first cover shoot of its kind in SI history. Instead of one single cover to honor the 23 players and coach Jill Ellis, the legendary media giant shot one cover for each of them, along with a group shot, for a total of 25 different covers.

Subscribers will get the team cover and newsstand distribution will be a random mix of the covers, but you can see them all below.
