Just checking in to see if someone would be so kind as to volunteer to help me out...I would really like a copy of the Cincy Enquirer the morning after we clinch for a little collection I keep. I don't need the whole paper, just the sports section...or maybe the front page if that has a better pic/headline. I am more than willing to pay for the paper itself and all shipping costs. If anyone is interested, email me directly at edskin1@cox.net

Thanks!

Ed, I can probably handle it for you. I've even got an envelope large enough to send it to you intact (not folded) from when I bought up a bunch of the Nuxhall issues from the Enquirer & the Post that never sold).

Send me a PM regarding where to send it. You can pay me through PayPal or Google Checkout.

Great, thanks...sending PM right now.

Redsmetz, not to push the envelope, so-to-speak, but if you have an extra envelope and are willing, I'd love the same. If not, no worries, but I figure I'd ask. Thanks :)

I'm used to shipping things everywhere since I sell stuff online and I'm at the Post Office everyday, so it's not a big deal. I'll see how many envelopes I have and how much they cost me (I think it was under $2), so just PM me too.

What's a newspaper? Just kidding. We should keep them alive for big days like this.

Is it important to folks to have the paper not folded? Folding it will allow for less costly mailing.

My guess is that a lot of folks want to frame it. Hence, the no folding request. The Enquirer sells commemorative reprints for that very purpose if anyone is interested; I've included a link below.

I've heard from five folks who want the paper. Pertaining to Reds1869's comment, for those who do want one, I need to know whether folks want them NOT folded because that's a different envelope that are a bit more expensive (I have two in stock). That's fine, but I just need to know.

If any of the five have decided to buy directly from the Enquirer, let me know that too.

OK, I've picked up the papers and here's who I have that asked for them

Cincinnati8
TNRedleg (3 copies)
MississippiRed
Edskin
SirFelixCat
CarolinaRedleg
Cicero

Only Mississippi Red indicated whether it was OK to mail it folded (yes, he said), so I need to know whether anyone wants it NOT folded.

Also, the paper says there will be a commemorative issue coming out today, but it wasn't at my Kroger's. I can check later this morning to see if those are in and let me know if you want that ALSO.

Once I have folks answers (PM me, except for Cincy8 who can email me) then I'll get these out today.

Everyone seemed to indicate that they just want the Front Page and the Sports section. I'll assume that's the case unless someone tells me otherwise.

Edskin

I thought I sent you a PM earlier, so in case you didn't get it, I'll post here...I am totally fine with having it folded, I only want the front page/sports section, and I am not interested in the commemorative issue. As soon as you get it all totaled, let me know and I will paypal you asap.

BTW, this is the front page today (http://www.enquirer.com/editions/pdf/OH_CE_290910.pdf)

And in a smaller, but non PDF format for those who don't have Acrobat Reader (http://www.enquirer.com/editions/pdf/OH_CE_290910.jpg)

Not folded, please, and just the front page section & sports section. If you happen to pick up the commemorative thing, I'll take that too, but not nearly as big a deal as the paper.

Thanks again for this!

My wife works for the enquirer. She was out last night selling a 4 page special edition commemorating the Reds winning the division. She just called me to say most of their single copy retailers (think Kroger, UDF, etc.) have sold out of newspapers. They have volunteered to pick up more papers and deliver them to the stores.

I contacted the newspaper via email and they are sold out of the Cincy edition. The customer service rep is trying to locate a copy for me.

I bought three papers this morning at Starbucks on my way to work -- one for me, one for my friend Matt in Chicago (who also posts on here), and one for a friend in B'More. If I have time, I'll stop around today and see if I can find a few more copies in case anyone else wants a paper.

Also bought the 4 page "Extra" Edition from last night. I thought that was a really cool move from the Enquirer.

Fay reported a little while ago that the Enquirer hopes to get some special edition papers of all the Reds stuff out to Krogers and other stores sometime this afternoon. That's very good for me since I never got around to picking up one this morning. I hope that is still there when I get off work. :(

For how maligned printed news has become, nothing can replace a hard copy of a historic event.

Folks, I was able to pick up 10 additional copies. It's the same as this morning's paper, but was just the front page and sports sections, which is what most folks wanted. The difference is this second group says "special edition" at the top. Let me know if anyone else wants one. Most have paid with PayPal, but for folks who don't have PayPal, I also have an account with Google Checkout and can send you a bill by email and you can pay by credit or debit card. Google handles it all, so I don't get access to your card info. Their security is very good. I've even had them rescind some sales on my website because the purchase didn't pass their security checks - disappointing on one hand, but glad to know it's vigilant.

It would be quite comical to send Carpenter an Enquirer with a not inside saying "How do you explain this to your son?"

Cicero

I sent my e-mail addy to you via pm. I prefer not folded because I intend to frame it but since I was so late to respond either way is fine.

Joe, can you hold onto one of the copies for me? Lady paint was supposed to pick one up for me today but I don't know if she was successful. I'll be down your way the next few weekends, so I can swing by and pick it up.

EdSkin & SirFelixCat, your's went in the mail yesterday. Griffey08, your's went in the mail this morning.

For those I got copies for, let me know if you still need PayPal info. I sent one person an invoice from Google Checkout, so PM if you didn't get that. Two others said they've sent payment in the mail, so I'll get your's out as soon as those come in (probably Monday since I don't check my box on Saturday).

Paint, I've set one aside for you, so just let me know when you'll be down here. I have to do a count, but I think I have a few more not claimed.

This has been fun helping everyone out. It's so exciting that we won the division. On to better things!

I still have five copies of the Special Edition of the Enquirer (same as the daily except it has a red box that says "Special Edition". I may have two more, but I'm waiting to hear back from two folks who said they wanted one - and I'm still holding the one for your Paint).

If anyone wants one, let me know. I've PM'd the other two folks, so if you've found a copy and don't need these, send me a PM.

All right, I'll buy a copy. I had kind of been boycotting the physical copy of the newspaper, but it really would be nice to frame up and have around. Would you prefer it if I pick it up somewhere and pay you cash? I travel all over the city everyday, so anywhere near here is pretty much on the way for me.
