Want a copy of the Tampa Bay Times' front page announcing the Tampa Bay Lightning’s historic 2020 Stanley Cup championship?

The “CHAMPIONS” front page appeared in the Sept. 29 e-Newspaper, but will be reprinted as a full-size poster in the Sunday newspaper available with home delivery or to buy in stores and on racks on Sunday, Oct. 4.

The Sunday newspaper will feature a six-page special section devoted to the Lightning, including reprints of other Lighting front pages announcing the Stanley Cup championship. Limited quantities of the Sunday special section will also be sold by street vendors during Wednesday’s Lightning fan celebrations in Tampa.

The Tampa Bay Times currently only prints a physical, paper edition on Wednesdays and Sundays due to the coronavirus, but publishes the e-Newspaper, a digital replica of a print paper, daily at tampabaytimes.com.

The Times is also selling framed and matted posters of the championship front page in two sizes. A 12x16-inch framed copy costs $79, and a 20x30-inch framed copy is $99. An unframed, glossy, poster version of the front page (the actual size of a newspaper) is available for $24.95. All prices include shipping, but not tax.

To order with a credit or debit card, call (727) 893-8385 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Sign up for the Times' Lightning Strikes newsletter to receive updates on Lightning news, or other limited-edition merchandise if becomes available.

On Monday, the Times announced a limited-edition hardcover collector’s book titled “Thunderstruck,” containing more than 200 photographs — from the opening puck drop on the regular season to the final horn in Edmonton.
