Player will be the oldest person to ever pose nude for the magazine’s special edition. The second oldest was Jeff Farrell, a 73-year-old former competition swimmer and Olympic champion. He posed in the 2010 body issue.

This year’s issue will include 49ers’ quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Marlins’ outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, Wizards’ point guard John Wall, beach volleyball player Kerri Walsh Jennings, WNBA Chicago Sky forward Swin Cash, and professional tennis player John Isner.

Gary tells TMZ, “I did not do anything special for the shoot” … other than busting his hump working outdoors on his farm in South Africa everyday for a few months prior to dropping trou for ESPN.

He added, “I was already relaxed, tanned and ready to go.”
