We've wondered how the First Place covers from each of the six categories would fare if they had a showdown. Our Best of the Best Poll puts them up against each other to see which cover is the Best of the Best for the years 2005-2010. Each category poll is featured for a month on Cover Cafe's home page and then retired to the Best of the Best page. See if your favorite was the Best of the Best.
