The Saturday print edition of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is wrapped in a two-page photo of the Atlanta Braves World Series parade.

The edition, delivered to home subscribers, shows a sea of fans surrounding one of the Braves’ open-top buses as it neared The Battery and Truist Park on Friday. Printed over the headline, “What a Ride!,” the aerial photo was taken from a helicopter by AJC journalist Curtis Compton, whose ground-based photos are familiar to readers of the Braves game coverage all season.

The subhead: Braves Country packs streets to celebrate World Series championship.

All platforms of The Journal-Constitution, ajc.com, the AJC app, print editions and the ePaper, include extensive coverage of the celebration that began in downtown Atlanta, near the site of two former Braves stadiums — Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium and Turner Field, before ending with speeches and a concert inside the current ballpark, Truist Park.

In Sunday’s newspaper

As a treat to our subscribers, Sunday’s newspaper will contain four keepsake pages – the front page that read CHAMPS! The front page that read IT’S OURS! And the front pages from the collectible editions we distributed outside the stadium after the Braves’ victory. (One is English, the other is in Spanish.) You’ll find these inside Sunday’s Sports section, and they will also be available in the early edition of the Sunday newspaper that goes on sale Saturday at metro Atlanta stores.
