Historic newspaper

This morning, I decided I wanted a copy of the newspaper.
I stopped in at 'Third Place Books', and was greeted by a sign on the counter which read : "out of newspapers". Well, this is the kind of place where people leave newspapers on the tables for others to read. Hmm.... not today!
So, I strolled down to the grocery store to discover a completely empty newspaper shelf. Not even a 'USA Today' paper in sight! Then I meandered my way past a handful of empty newspaper boxes on the street. Everyone has bought a newspaper today! Which is pretty exciting really!
I finally found a newspaper box in front of a small cafe, with the box facing the wrong direction, so it was rather hidden from view. Voila! I had 50 cents and bought the last newspaper in the box! So, here is your view of the Seattle Times today!
And this is truly what I came across on my hunt!

You could probably sell that on E-bay for more than you payed for it!

I guess it's a collectors item!
